A warm wizard welcome! Have you, like many others, been wondering what all this metaverse business is all about?
📘 The metaverse (or the web 3.0) is the natural progression in the evolution of the internet from web-pages to web-experiences.
At GMetri, we’re democratizing the metaverse - allowing equal access to anyone who wants to participate in building the future of the internet.
GMetri experiences are URLs that need no downloads and are accessible with one click on most modern browsers. GMetri experiences also seamlessly integrate into apps, LMS platforms, etc. without a hassle.
This wizard helps you create a customized virtual room that you can walk around in, and invite your friends and coworkers to to speak, collaborate, present and chat in. It can be used to host small scale events, or embed on your website to make a more engaging way to interact with your brand.
This powerful utility will help you create your first metaverse experience by filling a simple form and publish it - all it takes is a few minutes! Your metaverse experience will have your posters and videos, and will link to your existing webpages.
Sounds exciting, right? Here’s a sample experience we built using this tool ourselves. Go ahead and click ‘Start’ below to check it out.
You can use the WASD or the arrow keys on your keyboard to walk around, and your mouse to look around. This experience is compatible with mobile phones and VR headsets as well.
And if this wasn’t cool enough, GMetri offers full fledged collaboration with audio and screen-sharing so you can deliver a presentation or meet your friends or coworkers in the metaverse - with one click. Play the video below to get a glimpse of collaboration in action.
Let’s get started.
Alright, so let’s go ahead and see how you can create your own metaverse within minutes. Follow these steps to get your first Metaverse experience:
Step 1: Sign-up for a GMetri account here. This experience is one of many wonderful things you can create using the GMetri toolkit.
Step 2: Open up the wizard form, and enter your email and API token.
You can find your API token on the GMetri platform landing page once you sign-in. The video below will help you find this.
Step 3: Prepare your assets. Your experience consists of your posters, videos and URLs. Below you’ll find a handy experience with the image / video sizes and dimensions clearly marked. This will help you create your assets in advance. Make sure to compress your assets so people can load your experience faster!
Hit ‘Start’ below to see the helper experience with all asset dimensions.
Step 4: Complete the form. Upload your logo, posters, video and type in the optional links if you want to add CTAs to the experience.
And you’re all done! Once you have submitted the form, you will receive an email with a link to your metaverse experience.

(Collaboration needs a paid license to function. Licenses start at $24 per month. See full pricing here.)
Idea 3: Enable lead generation, and deployment analytics to track people visiting your experience.
It might be important to collect names, emails or phone numbers so you can get back in touch with your visitors in the metaverse. GMetri’s built-in lead generation feature will make this a breeze to set up. Instructions to enable this here. Access analytics here.
Idea 4: Host a members-only metaverse event by enabling authentication.
