What is a room?
With telecommuting becoming more popular we thought, why not make a virtual place that is easy for anyone to join? No downloads, just a web address for your browser. And the concept of a virtual room name was born.
To create a room, go to appear.in, type in your desired room name or let our crazy random generator create on for you!
Click Start to Enter a room
You can invite others to the room by sharing the URL by copy and pasting inside an e-mail, calendar invite, text message or we Facebook Messenger straight from the room. For our distributed teams out there that utilize Slack we have a great integration to use.
Everyone who clicks the link will enter the room. When your friends have entered the room, it works pretty much like a physical room. All participants in a room can hear and see each other, and no one on the outside can hear and see them.
You can create a room without registering as an appear.in user, but that means when you leave the room, it will be available for anyone else to use. If you want to own a room permanently and have control over it, you need to become a registered user and claim it. An unclaimed room will have a icon at the top of the room page with a "Claim this room" icon.
If the "Claim" button is not shown, that means someone else already owns the room and you should create another room name.
