Remio Looks to Fill an AltSpace Shaped Hole

Remio is a new VR platform designed for remote team building and collaboration for global enterprise customers. Sound familiar? There are many such platforms that propose as such, but it was AltSpace that garnered much of the attention. Now, as Microsoft taking steps to end the life of the application, Remio has launched on the Meta Quest store. Could this be your new go-to for VR meetings?

Unlike other VR collaboration applications, Remio emphasises fun, puzzles and games to drive connections with co-workers. Companies and schools can download the app free from the Meta Store and inquire to Remio about joining connectivity pilots.
Jos van der Westhuizen, CEO and co-founder of Remio, said: “Enterprise VR is rising among companies and schools of all sizes because VR experiences drive critical skill building, social emotional learning and much more. Our platform offers a wide variety of interactive spaces in VR to drive employee and student engagement, such as an escape room, a happy hour bar, and paintball, in addition to all of the standard VR collaboration tools such as whiteboards, breakout rooms, and magical presentation rooms. We’ve received overwhelmingly positive feedback from clients already, and with our Remio app launch on the Meta Store, we’re looking forward to expanding our reach and connecting with new customers.”
