If you own a Samsung Gear VR headset, you can now use the AltspaceVR application on it by downloading the app from the Oculus Store. In case you are unaware of what the AltspaceVR is and what it is supposed to do, let us inform you that the AltspaceVR is a new venture that seeks to provide social experiences in the virtual world. It allows multiple users to socialize over a movie or a game and chat in a virtual surrounding. Once you consider that all this can be done from the comfort of your bedroom, the technology sounds astounding to say the least.
In the words of Eric Romo, the founder and CEO of AltspaceVR, “Our focus at AltspaceVR is creating the most natural and fulfilling communication experience possible online, and we’re thrilled to bring it to Gear VR.” All of this sounds sci-fi and uber cool, but the only downside that can affect the experience is the fact that the Gear VR may not be able to provide the same level of ease in terms of input when compared to a fully fledged computer. At this time however, AltspaceVR plans to expand its business by bringing in more content that will be particularly be in sync with the concept of coming together and enjoying it with other like-minded users.
