Presentation Mode in Spark AR Player

Setting Spark AR Player to presentation mode means your screen can be locked with the effect playing. Spark AR Player UI won't be visible.

This mode is useful if you want to leave an effect running on a device, for example at presentations or installations.

In presentation mode effects will be resumed even if someone tries to navigate away from the app. While presentation mode only blocks access to other features in Spark AR Player, this article covers how to prevent users accessing other parts of your device too.

How to set up and use presentation mode depends on whether you’re using an Android or iOS device.
