Everything you need to know about

Spend some time in our virtual break room and join the gathering. Below you can find some instructions, how to use the tool.

Gather is a space for you to interact more effectively online with a web-based video calling experience that provides a least a little onsite feeling. It combines video-calling with a 2D map, letting you walk around and talk to the other people right next to you. Additionally, there are different private spaces for any confidential conversations. Please simply sit down at a table - only the persons joining you on the carpet around it can hear what you are talking about.

Please use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox to enter the room.

Your first steps with Gather

  1. Please enter your name and choose your character when you first enter the space.
  2. You need to allow your browser to use your camera and microphone. Normally, this can be updated on the left hand side of your URL (address line, where you type in the website you want to visit) line.
  3. Once you entered the room you can simply move around with your arrow keys. When your character approaches others, a video call starts automatically with the people around you.
  4. In a private area (tables and carpets), you will be connected to everyone, who is in that private area.
