Matterport is looking for successful customers to feature on our website or as part of a case study we can pitch to the press. Is Matterport helping you attract more clients, close more deals, reduce costs, or increase efficiency? If so, please submit a 1-2 sentence testimonial below. If you have an interesting story - we’d love to share it on our website, via social, and with the press!
In mid November, Google started to roll out Chrome 62 mobile web browser to various mobile devices which negatively affected Matterport WebVR Spaces. Starting with Chrome 62, WebVR content is now required to include the allow="vr" attribute in the iframe code in order to launch. We are working to update the default iframe embed code generated for each Matterport Space on cloud to include this attribute by default; however, this update will not affect spaces currently embedded. If you have embedded WebVR Spaces, please be sure to include allow="vr" to ensure their functionality. See the example below:
Please note that this issue only affects Spaces that have been embedded into another website or app. If you launch the Matterport Tour directly, you will be able to view the WebVR content on your supported devices without issue. To learn more or to ask questions, read our Community post.
With almost 750,000 models published and thousands of users across 80 countries, we want to showcase the best that our community has to offer. All Spaces submitted to our 3D Gallery before December 31, 2017 will be eligible for a Matty Award, and it’s not too late to submit your own model for the running! Stay tuned throughout December to find out how you on how you can nominate an MSP for a Matty Award too!
