Introduction to Audio Feature

In the ever-evolving world of virtual environments, the Audio feature plays a crucial role in enhancing user experience. This feature allows for the addition of sound effects to objects, creating a more immersive and dynamic virtual world. By equipping the “Audio” component to an object (referred to as Object A), avatars can trigger pre-set sound effects upon interaction, adding a layer of realism and engagement to the environment. Furthermore, this feature offers the flexibility to upload custom sound effect data directly from a PC.
