Samsung Gear VR gains support for Google's YouTube VR app
Google announced earlier today that the YouTube virtual application fully supports Gear VR, a feature that might seem long overdue to those using Samsung's device. Powered by Oculus, the new YouTube VR experience on Samsung Gear VR will allow users to watch and discuss videos with others in a single, virtual space, among other things.

YouTube VR is already available on Daydream View, HTC Vice, and PlayStation VR, but a large chunk of customers, those using the Samsung Gear VR, were skipped initially. Thankfully, starting today, Samsung Gear VR folks join the millions of people who already had access to YouTube VR.

Samsung Gear VR gains support for Google's YouTube VR app

If you own a Samsung Gear VR, make sure to download the YouTube VR app from the Oculus Store, which is available for free starting this week. Along with support for Samsung Gear VR, Google announced that new, exclusive VR content is available to YouTube VR users.


Additionally, action videos and documentaries will be available to watch as well. So, there you have it folks, more devices that work with YouTube VR and more features to try out.
