It would be amazing if there's a way to share music or add background office music. And moderator or people could change stations.
Doors that Open, Close, and are password protected
Enable doors that you can interact with to open/ close
Need to add blur background and virtual background like photos being used as a background
We are considering using Gather for our company, but what is holding us back is the huge CPU usage needed to keep Gather running, as well as crashes during larger meetings because of our computers not being able to handle Gather. We have various setups (Windows with Chrome or Firefox, Ubuntu with Chrome or Firefox, MacOS) and most of us are often times noticing 100% CPU usage during larger meetings - when we all switch over to e.g. Google Meet, the CPU drops to 50% (with the same amount of meeting participants!). See the attached screenshots of the same meeting using Gather and Google Meet. It would be great to know if any performance improvements are planned!
Record directly from inside Gather
The only way to record a session right now is to use 3rd party applications.
Possibility to add pets
It would be really great if there was a possibility to add a pet to a user, ideally with customization options, which would follow around the avatar
Non-Player Characters and Bots
Thinking of a very simple script-based implementation. For example to staff an "Info Desk" and make custom tutorials for in-gather games.
Start a chat by clicking on a person
When I need to chat in text, it's very hard to get to the right person, even if the person is standing next to me. It would be great to click on the people's avatars to see the user's status + start the text chat from there. Right now even if we are standing next to each other, I still need to go to the "All participants", search, select the user, and then text. In addition to this, in the chat window it's impossible to search for the right person - I have to scroll through hundred people and the list is not sorted by proximity or recency of chat.
