About OZ

OZ is a destination for creators and communities to make memories in together. People can represent themselves with personalized avatars and live voice, in unbelievable experiences, previously not accessible to mobile. The experiences are interactive live-streams that are transformed into high-fidelity productions with beautiful graphics and OZ programmed camera logic to capture all the action. When combined with casual gamification and our simple user controls, we give communities the power to participate like never before.
