YouTube has announced that it is working on bringing its YouTube VR application to the Samsung Gear VR (virtual reality) device through the Oculus Store, the main application store on the South Korean brand device.
YouTube VR will arrive at the Samsung Gear VR to offer new virtual reality experiences to the users of this popular platform
The YouTube VR application is now available on the Daydream View, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR devices. The next step of Google would be to make it reach the Samsung Gear VR and then Oculus Rift and Oculus Go through the Oculus Store. The application will be updated in Daydream View and Gear VR with a new feature called “Watch Together”. This is a new feature that will allow the user to view and discuss videos in a virtual space with their friends, and which can be accessed by clicking on the “Watch together” icon below the playback controls. For now, this new feature will not reach the rest of the devices.
