Rooms 2.0 is now available to everyone! We're launching the next version of room creation and we need your help to make it incredible! Read on to learn about the new features available in Rooms 2.0.
What is Rooms 2.0?Rooms 2.0 is the next big leap in room creation within Rec Room. It includes a suite of features that optimize room capability and performance.

We are now opening Rooms 2.0 to everyone, so spread the word!Rooms created prior to Rooms 2.0 will continue to be supported. However, some new features will release exclusively for Rooms 2.0.
