Weekend Downloads: New Content for Samsung Gear VR

Weekend Downloads is part of our weekly update to bring you the latest additions to the Samsung Gear VR. This week, the Oculus Store has added a new app we have all been waiting for, a game, and a VR novel for your weekend downloading pleasure.

Also, Facebook and Oculus flipped the switch on Dynamic Streaming for Gear VR, which means 360 streaming videos have quadrupled in resolution, so everything looks clearer and plays faster. You can learn more about the full update here – really impressive stuff.

So for all you Gear VR owners out there, a little something for everyone to check out this week.

Get ready to snap in your phone scouts!
