Plex VR app launches on the Gear VR
After making its debut on the Google Daydream back in January, Plex's VR media center is now available on the Samsung Gear VR.
Like other similar offerings, the Plex VR media center puts you in the center of a virtual environment with a big, floating screen in the middle. Part of the fun, as usual, comes from the relatively high level of interactivity of each of the environments. Plex VR offers three such venues – a luxury apartment and a deep space scene known as “the void,” which are free, and a drive-in theatre, which you need to have a Plex subscription in order to use.
The Verge reports.Watching content on your own is free, but if you want to enjoy videos in VR with your friends, you need a Plex Pass. The platform currently allows users to invite up to four other friends to catch a movie on Daydream, so it’s likely support the same number of guests on the Gear VR as well,
Plex VR is available now on the Oculus Store, with an Oculus Go version planned for the near future.
