What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Pluto is in active development! We’re listening to your feedback and reviews to keep improving. We need your input to help us create the high-quality, remote communications service we all want and need!

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

We have a long journey ahead of us! We expect that it will be a few years before we are fully out of early access. With your help, we’re making Pluto the best that it can be.

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

The full version of Pluto will include updates and features that are currently in development during Early Access. We are looking for feedback and suggestions to help guide our development and prioritize service improvements!

Areas we’re working on:

  • Cross-platform interoperability. We currently support voice communication between VR and supported iOS devices.
  • The ability to share your view in VR. Let your friends see what you see by streaming your game on Pluto.
  • Addressing areas you’ve raised to our attention through feedback and reviews. We hear you, and we’re keeping your suggestions in mind as we progress towards beta.
  • Faster and easier connection for an experience that’s richer in social presence.

We're also investigating ways to support more platforms and operating systems so that Pluto is accessible to everyone!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

For a list of our currently implemented features, please refer to the "About This Software" section below.

  • As one of the first 3D overlay applications, there are still performance issues that sometimes occur when opening and closing the dashboard and switching between applications.
  • Overlays in SteamVR don’t currently support depth, and thus Pluto avatars render on top of other applications regardless of position. To deal with this current state, we’ve added opacity options and the ability to fully hide other avatars.

If you have specific questions, suggestions, or feature requests, please contact

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

Pluto is a free service by design. As we continue development, we may explore new options to help us pay the bills and keep the lights on. We aren’t sure exactly what those options could be yet, but we’re committed to keeping our users informed. We’re on a mission to make Pluto a viable remote communication solution for as many people as possible.

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?
