Gear VR
Create virtual reality apps, games, and experiences

Integrate the Gear VR framework (GearVRf) API to put your Gear VR headset and Galaxy smart phone users into immersive VR apps and games, and distribute them via the Oculus App Store.

Samsung's Gear VR headset is the next big thing in mobile VR and compatible Samsung Galaxy devices (Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 edge, S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, and Note 5). The Gear VR headset offers a 96-degree field of view (FOV), with a Quad HD Super AMOLED display from the mobile device. The Gear VR headset also has state-of-the-art 3D sound for a fully immersive experience.

Gear VR leverages the Oculus platform for development and uses its content store for full monetization. The Oculus Mobile Software Development Kit (SDK) allows you to build anything you can dream up for Gear VR. There's no need to worry about app compatibility across devices, as experiences built for Gear VR will work for each model.

Once your content is ready for market, your Gear VR experiences, games, and apps are published and downloadable through the Oculus App Store. Samsung VR, a free app available in the Oculus App Store, provides a platform for you to share and stream your 360° video productions with the VR community.
