what is the Announcer? I see it freequently in the json and in the console “setMapAnnouncer…”, and I wonder what it is?
It doesnt seem to be the Announcer that can be triggered by Moderators, which pops up for every User in the Space, or am I mistaken?
Also, is it possible to trigger such an Announcement via API?
Thanks in advance!
Announcers are spotlight tiles. Much like whisper, they had a name in the code before they had a name in the platform (I guess). But setMapAnnouncer will allow you to add spotlight tiles to a map.
uff… okay. Thanks for clearing this for me.
Then, I keep an eye open for an solution that allows to trigger those pop-up announcements.
Triggering those has definitely been something requested in the API office hours. Not sure if it got much priority, though.
That said, there may be a different solution coming soon.
