  • Publication number: 20240153205
    Abstract: While a representation of a three-dimensional environment is visible via the first display generation component, a computer system, displays, via a second display generation component, one or more graphical elements that provide a visual indication of a status associated with a user who is in a position to view the representation of the three-dimensional environment, including changing the one or more graphical elements to represent changes in the status associated with the user. In response to detecting a first event that corresponds to the start of media capture using the computer system, the computer system displays, via the second display generation component, a first visual alert that indicates the start of media capture, wherein the first visual alert is displayed concurrently with at least a portion of the one or more graphical elements.

  • Patent number: 11934569
    Abstract: A computer system displays a first and second user interface object in a three-dimensional environment. The first and second user interface objects have a first and second spatial relationship to a first and second anchor position corresponding to a location of a user's hand in a physical environment, respectively. While displaying the first and second user interface objects in the three-dimensional environment, the computer system detects movement of the user's hand in the physical environment, corresponding to a translational movement and a rotational movement of the user's hand relative to a viewpoint, and in response, translates the first and second user interface objects relative to the viewpoint in accordance with the translational movement of the user's hand, and rotates the first user interface object relative to the viewpoint in accordance with the rotational movement of the user's hand without rotating the second user interface object.

  • Publication number: 20230350539
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a computer system modifies the visual appearances of user interface objects based on their spatial arrangement relative to the viewpoint of the user in a three-dimensional environment. In some embodiments, a computer system displays, via a display generation component, a representation of a message in a three-environment at a first distance from a viewpoint of the user, and then changes the distance of the representation of the message to be a second distance from the viewpoint of the user. In some embodiments, a computer system is configured to transition virtual objects from a three-dimensional appearance to a two-dimensional appearance and/or from a two-dimensional appearance to a three-dimensional appearance.

  • Publication number: 20230315247
    Abstract: A computer system displays a first user interface object at a first position in the three-dimensional environment that has a first spatial arrangement relative to a respective portion of a user. While displaying the first user interface object, the computer system detects an input that corresponds to movement of a viewpoint of the user, and in response, maintains display of the first user interface object at a respective position in the three-dimensional environment having the first spatial arrangement relative to the respective portion of the user. While displaying the first user interface object, the computer system detects a first gaze input directed to the first user interface object, and in response, in accordance with a determination that the first gaze input satisfies attention criteria with respect to the first user interface object, displays a plurality of affordances for accessing system functions of the computer system.

  • Patent number: 11632344
    Abstract: Disclosed are media attachment systems to enable a user to embed a first media item with a link to a second media item, and distribute the first media item in a message to one or more recipient client devices. For example, the first media item may include a picture or video captured by a user at a client device. The user may generate a message that includes the first media item. In response, a media attachment system may cause display of an interface at the client device that includes an option to attach an address to a second media item to the message. For example, the second media item may include a web page, social media post, picture, or video identified by an address such as a Uniform Resource Locator (URL).
