Sharing a Link to Your Current Location in Showcase

Users can now link users directly to any specific spot in a Space, like the garage, the living room, or the kitchen.. This makes it much easier for users to communicate about specific areas of a Space.

Share on Desktop 

  1. Go to Matterport Cloud (my.matterport.com)
  2. Open the Space you wish to share. 
  3. In Showcase, navigate to the specific area you want to share (in this example, it's the kitchen). 
  4. Hit the "Share" icon at the bottom-right of the Showcase window. Screen_Shot_2020-01-16_at_11.13.58_AM.png

    • Email 
  7. Alternatively, hit the "Copy" button to have the shortened URL copied to your clipboard. socialsharing.png
  8. Paste the URL into any social media platform to share the Space, starting at the specific area you chose.

    • Choosing an app will automatically upload the shortened link - in most cases (depends on which platform you're uploading to), you will be able to see the URL before posting, and include a short writeup.
