Important: Recording is a space feature, if you are traversing a world you must stop recording in the space you started recording, save the recording, move to another space and start recording again.
If you’d like to record your journey across a world of spaces consider using a traditional third-party screen recording software. This will allow uninterrupted recording when moving between spaces.
Recording is only available on Google Chrome for desktop.
Recording is not available on mobile devices or other browsers at this time.
