Weekly Development Update

Racing against time.

Opportunities don’t spring out of the blue. You have to create them. And the team at XANA understands that perfectly.

Each deliberate step is in service of a more significant dream – the dream to bring the latest Web 3 solutions to billions of people around the globe. Each week, we push ourselves to churn out new features, fix bugs, and deliver a better experience through our products.

Here’s what’s been happening behind the doors.

Rest assured, our developers are on a mission to ensure your virtual interactions are as smooth and synchronized as they are in real life. Soon, connecting with your best friend in XANA will feel more natural than ever.
  2. Refining Expressions – Post 2.0: We’ve noticed some of our animations weren’t quite hitting the mark. Our creative team is currently tweaking these animations in Post 2.0 to bring more life and accuracy to your digital expressions. Your avatars are about to get a lot more expressive.
  3. Streamlining Entry – Onboarding 2.0: A seamless welcome mat is crucial for any experience. That’s why we’re ironing out the wrinkles with the Login/Sign options in our Onboarding 2.0. We’re committed to making your first step into the XANA Metaverse as smooth as your journey.
  4. Visibility Matters – Avatar Invisibility Functionality: Invisibility is cool, but not when unintended. We’ve caught an issue where avatars were turning invisible under certain conditions. Our team is already on a quest to bring everyone back to visibility because, in XANA, everyone deserves to be seen and heard.
  5. Accessibility at Its Best – Friend’s Icon: Your connection ability should never be hindered, so the disabled issue with the Friend’s icon caught our immediate attention.

Expect to dance, interact, and celebrate without needing a virtual snorkel.
  3. Enhancing Usability – Setting Screen UI Issues: A seamless experience is key to fully enjoying the XANA Metaverse, and the setting screen is your control panel for personalizing this journey.

  2. Perfecting Perspective – Camera Angle Issue from TPP to FPP: A change in perspective can change everything, and we understand the importance of seamless transitions from Third-Person Perspective (TPP) to First-Person Perspective (FPP).

  3. Streamlining Movement – Functionality Issue of Transport Component: Transportation is the heartbeat of exploration in the XANA Metaverse, and we’ve spotted a snag in the functionality of our Transport component.

Our developers are fine-tuning the color palette and syncing mechanisms to bring uniformity and clarity to your avatar’s appearance. Your digital persona reflects your unique identity, and we’re committed to ensuring it shines consistently bright.

XANA is by no means a single product. It’s an amalgamation of various ideas that need individual attention. Or they risk running adrift.

With that said, we’re always happy to share progress on each product under the XANA umbrella. We’re doing our best to keep things together and progress toward a better future for all of us.
