Viewing tours in VR on Oculus Quest & Go
You can view your posts and tours on Oculus Quest or Go devices using the Oculus Browser, thanks to Kuula's WebVR integration.
Note from April 30th, 2020: Oculus has changed the way they support web-based VR in their browser. Our team is updating Kuula to the new specs required by Oculus, but it may take some time before it will be implemented and launched. In the meantime, please use mobile phones & cardboard VR whenever possible. Sorry for the inconvenience!

The Oculus Browser is available on the Oculus headsets by default. You can find it in the main menu under Navigate > Browser.
Navigating the site
Once you open the Oculus Browser, simply go to kuula.co
When the page loads, you can navigate it using the Oculus Go controller or the touch page on the Gear VR in the same way you would move around the website on a desktop computer. Once you access the tours page, select the one you would like to view in VR:
When the first post from the tour loads, tap on the VR icon in the toolbar on the top/right end of the screen:
Once you are in the VR mode, you can look around your 360 photos and navigate your tours with gaze navigation, using the remote or using the touch pad on the side of the Gear VR headset. To navigate between posts, look at the choosen hotspot and press the button on your remote or simply wait till the progress bar is full and you will be taken to the next image.
The best thing about WebVR is how easy it is to share the tours with other people. Just send them the link, that they can open on their VR device. You can even share your tours to Facebook or Twitter in Virtual Reality.
Samsung Gear VR
If you are using the Samsung Gear VR headset, you need to download and install the Oculus Browser first. You can find it on the Gear VR store. Once you install it on your Gear VR headset, we recommend to make it your default web browser, replacing Samsung Internet.
