Oculus Launches Rooms and Parties for Samsung Gear VR

Starting today, you and your friends can meet and play in VR through Oculus Rooms and Parties for Gear VR (and coming soon for Oculus Rift).

Oculus released two new social apps for Gear VR: Rooms and Parties.

  • Oculus Rooms enables you and your friends to watch videos together, or jump to multiplayer games such as Dragon Front.
  • Oculus Parties allow you and your friends to communicate in VR with a voice conference.  To use Party, just go to Oculus Home and click on the Party tab, then select the people you want to join the party.
To use Parties, go to Oculus Home and look for the Parties tab below your profile.  Click on the three dots on the right side of one of your friends, then select Start a Party.

To use Rooms, start a Party first, and from there join a Room.

Oculus Rooms and Parties are currently available only for Gear VR but will also be rolled out to  Oculus Rift.  Rooms and Parties were announced at Oculus Connect 3.

BTW if you want to send me a friend request, my Oculus username is “real360rumors”!
