Hey HN!

The metaverse is not one app. It's a network of thousands of virtual worlds people visit daily to play games, work, and collaborate. To unlock the full potential of the metaverse, those worlds need to be connected. Today we're making a big step towards making that happen.

Ready Player Me is an avatar platform used by 260+ companies, including VRChat, Somnium Space, Mozilla Hubs, and others. Today, we are launching our biggest update ever, taking us closer to our vision – create a platform that allows you to keep a consistent identity in virtual worlds and the Metaverse.

The Ready Player Me Hub allows you to create one or multiple avatars and use it in all supported applications in a few clicks. We shared more details on our blog.

We are very excited about this big step towards making the Metaverse dream real.
