Samsung released a web browser called Internet for VR optimized for Gear VR. Gear VR is the virtual reality device which gives you 360-degree content and experience. The device was launched earlier. Consumers could only play and watch the amazing videos from local storage, YouTube and other HTML5 videos from the web. Also, they could play games and use a bluetooth game controller, but didn’t have the access to the web with a browser. Today, Samsung launched a web browser in the Oculus Store, it is still in beta version. They will be updating it soon and over the time.
Through the Internet for VR, users can directly enjoy a variety of on-line content by browsing the web. It supports both 360-degree and 3D video streaming, as well as any HTML5 video from the web, allowing users to enjoy video content in a fully immersive environment.
