We're so glad you're here to explore the Metaverse with Mona. This guide will help you enter into & explore Mona Spaces with friends.

Enter a Space

You can enter a Mona Space directly through your desktop web browser using Chrome, Brave, or Firefox on PC or Mac. Safari and Mobile are not yet supported.
You can enter hundreds of Mona spaces directly from the Mona website. To enter a Space with friends you will need to join or create an Hangout.
Click on any of the spaces to enter!

Create your own Hangout

All spaces start as a private single player experience.
To create a public hangout link Press (1) on your keyboard or select the Host a Hangout button.
Hangouts can host 100 users per instance before creating a new Instance of the space. That said, there is no limit to how many instances there can be.
Use '1' or click the Host a Hangout button to create a multiplayer space.
The link will be automatically copied for you to share with others. If you are already in a hangout space, or want to invite others, use the 'Share' button to copy the hangout link to the clipboard in order to send it to other users.
Click on the Share button to copy the link to your clipboard.

Join an existing Hangout
