Oculus Adds Social to Samsung's Gear VR

The Samsung Gear VR just got better.

Facebook's Oculus brings social features to the Samsung Gear VR users.  The new made-for-VR games let you team up with friends or compete against people from all over the world. Users can create profiles and find each other via real name or the Oculus username.

Social Trivia, created by Oculus, is a new game that lets you and up to four friends compete in a battle of knowledge. Look for it in the Concepts section of the Oculus Store.

Oculus also added the ability to create rooms with friends in Oculus Social. Now you can watch Twitch or Vimeo streams in a room with people you know.

Herobound: Gladiators, the multiplayer adventure game, is now available on the Oculus Store. Band together with up to four people to conquer goblins and demons in arena battlefields. Use integrated voice chat to talk and strategize in real time for co-op action.

Oculus enabled user reviews on the Oculus app store starting today as well. A new Facebook Videos tab has been added to Oculus Video, and starting next week, you’ll be able to connect your Facebook account with Oculus Video to personalize your 360 video feed based on the pages and people you follow. In the coming weeks, you’ll be able to like and share your favorite Facebook 360 videos from within VR.

Later this month, we’ll release new tools for developers that make it even easier to create more incredible social VR games and apps.
