If there's a Gear VR shaped present underneath the tree, or if you've been traversing the metaverse alone, then the latest news from Starship should put a smile on your festive faces! VTime Early Access, our virtual reality sociable network, is now live and available to download from the Oculus Store for Gear VR users!
Our free open alpha allows you to meet up and chat with friends in one of eight incredible virtual environments. There, you can create a bespoke avatar, take a vTime selfie, and claim a unique vTime username, before jumping into chats with fellow users around the world using just a phone, a Gear VR headset, and an internet connection.
Currently available for the Innovator Edition and consumer Gear VR headsets, vTime is compatible with the Galaxy Note 5, and Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and 6S+, with support for the Note 4 coming soon.
We hope you enjoy the fruits of our labour! We're incredibly proud of what we've created, but we're dying to hear what the community thinks. Whether your feedback is good or bad, make sure you share your opinion at one of the vTime FOURums (see below), or via the vTime community located here. We're determined to create the network that you want to see.
If you don't have a Gear VR headset, stay tuned for imminent news on vTime for Google Cardboard. Also, if you're heading to CES this January, make a beeline to the VR section and come and say 'hi'!
See you in vTime!
