Note: If you want to share your space with others, we suggest copying the Showcase link URL from Chrome - sharing this link will allow others users to view the space in VR so long as they have an iPhone 7 or higher and Google Cardboard. To do this, open the model in Google Chrome for iOS, hold your thumb over the URL bar to select the entire line of text, and tap Copy.
