Early Access Software

Get involved with this software as it develops.

Note: This Early Access software is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to use this software in its current state, then you should wait to see if it progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Spatial computing is in its infancy. A lot remains to be discovered about this new medium. Releasing Softspace through Early Access lets us learn from passionate users how to make the most powerful and intuitive virtual creative workspace.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“6-12 months.”

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

“User feedback will play a big role in shaping Softspace's development, but here are some improvements we have in mind:

• UI and UX design improvements
• Expanded file format support
• Expanded content type support
• Export functionality
• Workspace sharing and discovery features
• Performance optimizations
• Additional 3rd party integration options

As development progresses during the Early Access period, we will do our best to migrate workspaces to newer versions with minimal impact. However, we can't guarantee that workspaces will be unaffected as features evolve.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version is stable and provides the minimal feature set needed to start working effectively on your projects in VR.

Current Features:

• Persistent virtual workspaces
• Up to five real-time collaborators per workspace
• Flexible rooms and boards to organize your project
• Dropbox integration
• Integrated web browser
• 2D and 3D content support
• Sketching and annotation

Currently Supported 2D File Formats:

Currently Supported 3D File Formats:
• OBJ”

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

“The new version of Softspace will be subscription-based. If you buy Softspace before we move to subscriptions, you'll get six months' of Softspace Plus for free.”

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

“We depend on your feedback to improve usability and catch bugs, but most importantly we want to learn what specific use cases matter to you. Your feedback will help inform future features and integrations. You can always write to us at”

New Softspace Coming Soon

Over the past year, we've been hard at work building a brand new version of Softspace.

This new version is a ground-up redesign. It is both more powerful, and more efficient, than the first. So efficient, in fact, that it runs smoothly on the Oculus Quest.

We're currently testing the new Softspace with a small group of early users. If you would like to join us as a pre-release test user, sign up for free access at

The new Softspace comes out later this summer as an update to the current version. Please know that any workspaces you create in this current version will not be accessible after the update. The new version will be free to use, with subscriptions available for more advanced features. If you purchase Softspace before the update, you'll get six months of Softspace Plus in the new version, across all your devices—including Quest.

To those of you who already bought the current version: thank you. We'd love to express our appreciation by offering you one year of Softspace Plus. That's a few hundred bucks of thanks. If you already made a Softspace account, you should have received an email about this already. If you bought Softspace on Steam previously but haven't made an account yet, please email us at with your Steam receipt. We'll make sure you get your credits.

We can't wait for you to see the new Softspace.

About This Software

Softspace is a powerful new thinking and collaboration tool for creative people. Build beautiful, magical spaces where you always have the room you need to do your best work.

Computers are fantastic. They give us superpowers. But every phone and laptop is limited by the same thing: its tiny, flat display. All that information, locked away inside.

Spatial computing sets it free.

Spatial computing just means interacting with digital things in 3D space. It's a new way of using a computer inspired by a very old place: the physical world.

That's why you're already so good at it.

We designed Softspace's features to support your creative process. Why? Because we're creative people ourselves, and we wanted to use Softspace too.

Softspace gives you room.

Room to meet. You're never really together when you're on a video call. Is that why they're so unsatisfying? When you meet in Softspace, you truly feel like you're in the same place—from across a desk, or across an ocean.

Room to think. Softspace's interface is intuitive, yet powerful. Easily make a new workspace (or ten) and fill it with your best ideas. Put your natural powers of spatial memory and spatial reasoning to good use.

Room to focus. You need beautiful surroundings to make beautiful things. Softspace's curated environments are designed to promote deep work. Tune out the noise, and concentrate on what matters most.

What will you build?

A project war room? Every project at IDEO gets its own room, because it's the best way to keep everyone on the same page. Build your team a project space that transcends the limits of physical area and distance.

A memory palace? We evolved to remember objects in our environment—not stuff on a screen—and we do it really well. Start filling a workspace with all the knowledge you can't afford to forget.

An inspiration library? Steve Jobs once said that creativity is just connecting things. We know that great ideas don't emerge in a vacuum. Build yourself a mood space where you can always find inspiration.
