Is it possible for users to view an Aura without having to follow a channel / campaign?


Unified Login

If you want other users to avoid having to go through the 'Follow' process in order to view your AR content, there is the option to provide them with the login credentials of an App account which is already following the content. This would be our recommended approach:

  1. Create a new login with the HP Reveal App
  2. Use the login to follow the content you have created yourself
  3. Provide those login details to anyone who you want to view your content so that they are automatically following that content

QR Code

It is possible for Auras to be viewed automatically, i.e., these experiences do not require app users to first follow the account in which they exist, or even login at all. This is possible by asking users to scan a QR code, prior to scanning your trigger image.

In order to set this up, you need to take the following steps:

Step 1 - Go to 'My Account' in Studio:


Step 2 - Click 'Share Campaign' which appears on the left hand menu:


Step 3 - Click on the URL that is generated:


Step 4 - Copy the full URL that appears in the address bar:


Step 5 - Find a QR Code generator, we recommend


Step 6 - Copy and paste the URL into relevant box 

Step 7 - IMPORTANT - Remove the 's' after 'https' from the full URL before generating QR code

Step 8 - Generate the QR code

Step 9 - Add the QR code to your trigger image. Users can scan the QR code with the Reveal app, and as long as you removed the 's' after the 'https' in the URL, users will not need to be logged in to view your content as the QR code will auto follow the content on that users device.


As part of HP’s constant commitment to innovation, we are currently in the process of reshaping the future of HP's augmented reality products. As a result, we are reworking our paid product offerings, including Universal Auras, and will therefore not be taking on any new customers into our Beta program for the immediate future. We will have more to share with our registered users in the near future. 

Although we are reworking our paid products, you can continue to create and share AR experiences through the Studio for free. As a result, the two approaches above would be our recommended solutions.

NOTE: Try not to encourage users who are logged in with those details to follow anything else - otherwise, everyone using those same login details will automatically be following those channels / campaigns too
