Introducing SynergyXR 1.7

We're rolling out a brand new look, even better controls, new avatars, and much more in the latest version of SynergyXR.

SynergyXR 1.7 Release Highlights

Here’s what we’ve packed inside the latest version of SynergyXR

  • Sleek and modern user interface for easier interaction
  • Better video controls and simplified keyboard
  • 6 new avatars with even more customization
  • 360 rotation of 3D models
  • Quick duplication of content

SynergyXR is maturing, so we thought it was about time to refresh the user interface to a more sleek and modern UI design. It isn’t all about the looks, though. We also made it easier to control content, rotate 3D models, duplicate viewers, plus lots of other things that I share in the video below.

Refreshed user interface

We’ve revamped the user interface (UI) for SynergyXR across PC, VR, and Manager – all to match our new visual identity. This modern UI is aligned across all applications ensuring an easily recognizable look & feel and consistent user experience.

We’ve also refreshed all content viewers, including the video player that now features larger on-screen buttons to easily play/pause or skip/rewind. The keyboard for VR has also seen major improvements, with a new slide-out number pad and special characters for a simplified design and ease of access.

New and updated avatars

As promised, we’ve expanded the built-in avatar system with 3 male and 3 female avatars to let users configure their avatar to their liking. We’re also including an assortment of new hair styles and clothing options.

Based on feedback from our community, we’ll decide on the direction moving forward to ensure we have a unified avatars system across all platforms (VR, PC, HoloLens, and more in the future) – so please share your thoughts on the updated look and feel of the avatars.

Better control of 3D models

Users can now rotate 3D models freely on all axis by grabbing individual rotation handles. We’ve also added a quick duplicate function on all viewers, as well as the option to lock individual objects ensuring that you don’t accidentally grab them when designing spaces. All these improvements will make it much easier to create new Spaces exactly to your liking.
