The Oculus app is now compatible with Chromecast, allowing the Samsung Gear VR headset to be used with Google’s media streaming dongle. Through the app, it is now possible to display the headset’s content on a second screen, bringing a new dimension to the virtual reality experience.
While VR can provide great entertainment, for anyone not wearing the headset it can be difficult to understand what is going on. By using Chromecast to display content on another screen, VR has the potential to become a more communal activity.
The introduction of Chromecast support offers new opportunities for gamers, whether it be introducing newcomers to the format, or holding VR parties.
