Text-to-Speech Announcements + Italian Language Support

Now MPEmbed features text-to-speech for announcements! The voice that reads your text will change based on the language that you are using! Of course, this means that if you are writing in all caps, the language that you choose might opt to spell out the letters. This feature is Best Experienced in Chrome!

And … Thanks to Paolo Tosolini, MPEmbed is now available in Italian!!! This is the first time that Matterport Showcase has been available in Italian, and it can be used by anyone simply by using the following link:

Another great reason why MPEmbed rocks!

Panorama Actions: Announcement + Hotspot Colors!

You can now set text to appear as users navigate your space. ‘Announcements’ are attached to individual panoramas. You can add the same announcements to multiple panoramas in order to constantly show the name of the room that you’re in — or you can hide them like easter eggs.

Additionally, you can now also set the colors of hotspots on the minimap individually. It’s pretty exciting what you can do with MPEmbed!

I also fixed a nasty bug that was happening that may have impacted settings saved for panoramas (hotspot visibility, hotspot labels, etc.) that impacted spaces edited in the past two weeks. I reviewed everyone’s saved data and no more than 20 spaces were ‘possibly’ affected. Glad to get past that!

I should mention that ‘Announcements’ is one of many features made possible by the completion of ‘UI v2.0’. By being able to fully control the user interface, the highlight reel can be opened and the ‘Announcements’ will move up along with it. Previously, the user interface was preventing quite a bit of progress.

So … next up … adding videos into the highlight reel?
