Glue meetings have very low bandwidth requirement. We have had successful Glue meetings with mobile 3G connections. The assets and data for the three dimensional virtual meeting rooms are downloaded to the device before entering the chosen room for the first time. Therefore entering a new virtual meeting room/space can require more and preloading the necessary room/space to Glue in advance is recommended for slower connections.
Currently Glue supports Windows / Mac (OSX) desktop computers as well as Oculus Quest 1 and 2 standalone VR devices. VR mode for Mac and PC users is available for all SteamVR compatible VR headsets (Oculus, HTC Vive, Valve Index and Windows Mixed Reality headsets).
No. Glue can also be used with a desktop computer or a mobile device such as mobile phone or tablet. The best thing is that each user can join Glue meeting with their preferred device and have a great collaboration experience.
No. Glue is not using webcam at all, like standard video conference systems, but all users are represented as 3D avatars in the 3D meeting environment. Avatar motions and gestures are based on data and inputs available from their devices.
Yes, microphone is required for communication with others. Headphones are strongly recommended to enable spatial audio but speakers can also be used when no headphones are available. Some devices have built in microphones and speakers and those can be used.

Glue comes with an installer for Windows and MacOS and is installed the same way as any standard desktop software. Latest Glue application version can also be downloaded from app.glue.work. If you want to use VR headsets with your computer you also need to install and setup SteamVR.
Organize a meeting like your normal meetings. Inform participants that the meeting takes place in a Glue meeting room/space. You should inform them which specific Glue meeting room/space they should enter if various rooms/spaces are available.
Launch a Glue application, sign in and choose a scene from the lobby list to enter.
