Oculus Go and Gear VR

You can view your posts and tours on Oculus Go and Samsung Gear VR devices on Oculus Browser, thanks to Kuula's WebVR integration.

Oculus Browser

The Oculus Browser is available on Oculus Go by default. You can find it in the main menu under Navigate > Browser. On Samsung Gear VR you may need to download and install this app. You can find it on the Gear VR store.

Once you install Oculus Browser on your Gear VR headset, you can make it your default web browser on this device, replacing Samsung Internet, which is less stable and does not support WebVR by default.

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.

Sharing

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.

The future is truly here!

On a final note, we'd like to add that VR in general and Oculus Browser in particular are a new and fast developing technology. At Kuula we strive to keep our features up-to-date with what the latest device or system offers, so come back here often to check for updates!
