Hi! If you’ve found this page, then that means you’ve probably been invited into an Orbital galaxy. We are so glad you’re here!
We’ve built our galaxies with one thing in mind – real connection between human beings! That means that a few things are different during an Orbital meetup. In this orientation you’ll learn…
Why Orbital is different
Orbital uses distance-based spatial audio, allowing you and your friends to have unlimited conversations and collaborate in the same space, without talking over each other. Plus, everything happens in the same galaxy, so there are never any meeting links to juggle.

How to navigate the galaxy
You can move your avatar by double clicking anywhere in the galaxy, or dragging it with your cursor.
Want to jump straight into the action? Pins are located in the sidebar, and are shortcuts to pre-designated areas in the galaxy. Click on one to view it, then double click nearby to move your avatar there.
If you get lost, just click the “Recentre me” icon at the bottom of your screen.
Collaborating with others
Your collaboration toolbar is at the top of your screen. From here you can add sticky notes, and pin links to the galaxy.
You can also embed full websites by sharing the URL in chat, and clicking on “Add this to the galaxy” in the preview.
Need to get rid of something? Just hover over it and click the Bin icon.
