FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

What is I3M Social World Beta?

I3M Social World Beta is not only a place to communicate in immersive environments with your friends, family, or co-workers, but it is a preview of the incredible technology that I3M is bringing to life! With new environments and previews of other worlds and their experiences, I3M Social World Beta is your gateway to the metaverse across multiple platforms, including VR.

How much does it cost?

I3M Social World Beta is free to try!  Come on in, invite your guests, and enjoy up to 30 minutes of one-on-one time in our exclusive environments – updated frequently.  Of course, if you would like to have unlimited sessions and up to 15 guests, you can sign up for one of our subscription plans starting at $20 USD (with special long-term pricing)!  Want to put yourself into the action?  You can have a custom avatar made just for you, a session with one of our digital artists to perfect it, and it can be used in all I3M Worlds!  Make sure to check out our pricing page. 

Do I need a gaming computer?

We want everyone to enjoy I3M Social World Beta, but it does require specific hardware.  To launch, we recommend a newer computer with a dedicated GPU, but we are constantly optimizing our software for more and more machines.  We anticipate the release of optimized PC, VR, and Mac builds in the coming weeks.

How can I get a custom avatar?

Jump into the experiences with your own personalized avatar!  I3M offers a custom avatar package starting at $149 USD that includes a session with one of our digital artists to get things just right.  Our library of custom clothing and accessories is constantly growing.  Not only can custom avatars be used in all upcoming I3M worlds, but you will also be able to customize even further with special clothing and accessories.  Take a look at our product page and have a custom avatar made for you or many for your group/family! 

Why is there an age limit?

Due to policies and laws where we operate, I3M Worlds are limited to those who are 13 years old and up.  You can refer to our privacy policy and terms of service.  If you are interested in an educational exception, please contact us at legal@i3m.tv

Can you record my sessions and experiences?

We don’t record any sessions or experiences!  We only collect anonymous analytical data from our System to improve the experience for you and others. 

What do you do with my personal information?

We do not sell your personal information!  We collect very limited information, which is covered in our privacy policy.  We do use anonymous information we collect from your use of the System to improve the experience for you and others.  Of course, you can always opt out of our e-mails by clicking the link unsubscribe link. 

Can I meet strangers through I3M Social World Beta?

No.  You can build your list of connected users by their username and by e-mail only.  You must invite all friends and they must accept your request.  Once online, you can invite users to your experience, and they must accept to join.

How much storage or bandwidth will I need?

I3M Worlds are created with an incredible level of detail and functionality.  We are constantly working to increase our optimization of space and bandwidth. We recommend a minimum of 3GB HDD space and a 20MB/S broadband connection.  The initial download may take up to 1GB of space and is required upon first installing the application.  Subsequent experiences will vary in size from 500MB to over 3GB depending on the size and scope.   

What audio quality and resolutions will be available?

We have optimized our worlds for full HD (1080p) and VR, but with a high-end GPU the program automatically detects the hardware and can scale up to 4K (2160p).  Frame rates will vary depending on hardware capability.  For the best audio quality, we recommend using a premium headset to utilize spatial audio and hardware capable of encoding at 10bit / 128kbps.
