What are the biggest insights and observations in AR and adjacent sectors this week? Welcome to Reality Bytes, featuring lightning-round commentary from AR Insider partner M7 Innovations. Founder Matt Maher lends his insights from the trenches of AR experience creation.

We continue the narrative this week with Maher’s look at Clubhouse’s spatial audio, iPhone satellite connections, and Instagram’s discovery engine. See the quick summary below, followed by embedded video. And stay tuned each week for more AR-related musings from Maher.

🔊 Clubhouse releases a spatial audio feature to make it feel you’re in the ‘middle’ of a group conversation. Forget Clubhouse, we dive into the tech.

🛰 Apple’s iPhone 13 may allow internet connectivity via Low Earth Orbit satellites, or LEOs. We discuss the implications.

🤳 Instagram is bringing photos and videos into search for ‘discovery and inspiration.’ We debate the real reason for the move (hint: TikTok).
