World and channel bans in Dashboard
Banned users lists have moved to Account Dashboard. World Owners, Managers, and Moderators can still use the same “Banned Users” menu item in their World Settings (inside worlds) to get to these lists.

On this same page, owners and admins will also find a new list of all user sessions (click the “User Sessions” tab to access the list). From here, you can filter by date and time to find users who previously entered your world, and view their profile or ban them from the world or channels.

🦊 New Avatar: Fox
The trickiest of avatars has just entered your world (sneakily, of course 🤫). Choose this avatar when you’re feeling sly, nocturnal (sometimes), or just want a fluffy tail and ears.

👋 Refreshed push notifications
Receive browser push notification when your favorite world opens using the
“Notify me when this world opens” setting in My Account > Settings. Users can also subscribe to this notification from the enter world screen for a closed world.
Frame 1
The “World Push Notifications” admin setting (found in World Settings > Integrations) is now a dropdown with 3 options: Admins Only, All Users, and Disable For All. This means World Owners and Managers can have more control over which users can see the push notification settings in My Account.
Frame 2
🎥 Video modes improvements
We added a few helpful improvements to video modes:
  • While in presentation mode, an overlay will display behind videos, and avatar movement with mouse is disabled. So, no more moving on accident when you try to use video settings in presentation mode!
  • Also, when you’re in presentation mode, videos will not fade out based on proximity (unless you completely disconnect from someone). This will allow you to watch a presentation in your proximity without visual interruption.
  • You can now pin a video from audio mode (which switches the mode to presentation mode).
📺 New Video Modes
We’ve officially launched our first new video modes: 🔈 audio mode and 🧑‍🏫 presentation mode. Find both in the new Video Settings drawer (click “Video Settings” on the toolbar in worlds to access this drawer).

Use presentation mode when watching a broadcaster or screenshare. You can choose to 📌 pin a video to have it occupy the central video space.
  • Note:
    The pin feature has replaced the expand video feature.

Use audio mode when exploring the world or for a less busy visual experience. You can still access all of the same settings using the triple dot menu next to other users’ nameplates.

You can find this setting in the new "Video Settings" drawer as well.

The initial message load has been updated from 25 to 100. Also, you will auto-scroll to bottom of a direct message when sending a direct message, opening a direct message, and receiving a direct message. When your scroll hits the top of a direct message, 20 more messages will be loaded.
