Ever since we launched Ready Player Me back in May last year, our goal was to create a cross-game avatar platform for the metaverse – one that gives you a consistent digital identity everywhere you and your avatar go. Think of it as a passport that gives you access to thousands of virtual worlds. Today, we are making the metaverse passport real with the launch of the Ready Player Me Hub.
The metaverse is not one app. It’s a network of thousands of virtual worlds people visit daily to play games, work, and collaborate. To unlock the full potential of the metaverse, those worlds need to be connected. With the Ready Player Me Hub, we’re taking a big step towards making that happen.
The Hub lets you create and manage your avatars across all supported apps. You can have a work meeting in MeetinVR or classes in Mozilla Hubs in the morning, hang out with your friends in VRChat in the afternoon, and stream to Twitch in the evening using Animaze. In total, there are 260+ apps that already do or soon will support the new Ready Player Me Hub.
When you sign in to the Ready Player Me Hub, you can see all your avatars and connect them to your favorite applications in one click. To import your avatar into a partner app that uses Ready Player Me, all you need to do is sign in with your account
Our goal with the Hub is to make it easier for everyone to find new apps and games that already use Ready Player Me avatars. Every developer joining the platform can list their app in the Hub.
How to get started with the Ready Player Me account
Here's how to set up your Ready Player Me account:
- Go to readyplayer.me/avatar. If you don't have an avatar yet, follow the steps to create one. It takes just a selfie and a few minutes of playing around with the customization options.
- When your avatar is ready, click Next in the top right corner. You will be redirected to the new Hub interface.
- To save your avatar, click Claim now and sign in with your email address. You will get a one-time login code that you need to type in the Hub. After this, you're all set.
What can you do with the Ready Player Me Hub
You can use the Hub to connect your avatars to available apps in the Discover Apps tab. To import your avatar into a new app, all you need to do is click Connect avatar. For applications that require a few extra steps, we included steps to connect your avatar.
In the coming weeks, we are going to launch the Wardrobe where you will be able to store limited-time and exclusive customization options. We can't wait to share more details about it soon.
