Proximity chat

Proximity chat or spatial chat is type of internet platform that overlays video teleconferencing software on a virtual world environment, so that users can navigate freely and have conversations among small groups. Proximity chat as a genre has evolved as a virtual event solution in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as an attempt to get around Zoom fatigue.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

A distribution of small groups across a virtual world map can be more informal than a many-to-many session, and to some extent this format is a functional replacement for breakout rooms. Some of the platforms employ a retrogaming aesthetic similar to a 2D overworld, while others work from a blank virtual world or one built up of a collage of photos placed by the user. Can be used to find people
