vTime Frequently Asked Questions

Will my device be supported?

It's incredibly likely, though at present we only offer support for the devices listed above.

We plan to support all headsets, so the likelihood of you being able to vTime is very good, that is unless you're still using a Nokia 3210.

Which VR headset will I require?

That's entirely up to you. A cornerstone of vTime is that it's platform agnostic, meaning we plan to support all headsets as they're released to the public. Right now,  we support the Samsung Gear VR, iPhone, Oculus Rift, Google Daydream View, and Google Cardboard. Details for HTC Vive coming soon. 

When can I get the vTime app?

vTime  is available now for the Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift, iPhone Google Daydream View, and Google VR (Cardboard) with other mobile headsets following soon after. Go to the Oculus Gear VR Store to download vTime for Gear, Oculus Home for Rift, Google Play for Cardboard, Google Play for Daydream, and the App Store for iPhone.

Which stores can I get the vTime app from?

vTime is available from the Oculus Gear VR Store, Oculus Home, App Store, and Google Play for Cardboard, and Google Play for Daydream View now. You'll find vTime in other VR app stores soon as support extends to other headsets.

Will you support tethered headsets?

We already support Oculus Rift. More news on HTC Vive and PlayStation VR coming soon.

How does vTime work?

vTime is an app that connects you with friends and family around the world by using a phone, console or computer, a mobile VR headset and an internet connection. We've worried about the technical bits so that all you have to do is download the app, start it, and you're away!

From the vTime lobby, you'll be able to create a bespoke avatar, access friends lists, and choose your environments. When you've chosen the crew for your adventure, simply pick a destination and vTime!

Do I need to be on WI-FI?

No, vTime will run on 3G and 4G networks as well as Wi-FI.

Are you releasing a developer SDK?

It might seem selfish, but at launch we want to make all of the content ourselves. We have no plans to release a developer SDK at present, but that doesn't rule out us working with other developers to create content.

How much does vTime cost?

Nothing. Nada. Niente. It's free.

Do I need a VR headset to enjoy vTime?

You don't. Using Magic Window mode allows you to use vTime from your iPhone or Android phone. 

How many friends can I vTime with?

Initially, you'll be able to vTime with up to three friends in one session. Through our Early Acccess release, we'll be looking for community feedback to influence whether that number needs to increase, or whether you agree that four is the magic number.

What will I be able to do in vTime?

You and up to three people will be able to meet up and hang out in a multitude of environments from our library. You can share images, or sit within your own 360 images, send messages to your friends whether they're online or offline with vText, broadcast your session to the entire vTime network with vCast, and record your sessions or vCasts with our new record and playback function, with more exciting features on the way. 

Will I be able to create my own environment?

Not yet, though you can upload your own 360 images and sit within them with friends and family.  

Can I get involved in vTime tests?

We'd love it if you did! Sign up to our mailing list to be the first to know when our calls for testers open.

Can I submit content to be included in vTime?

Not yet. We've curated some incredible environments for you and your friends to enjoy, with the library expanding all the time. Eventually, we want to put the building blocks for vTime in the hands of the users. Watch this space.

How old do I need to be to join vTime?

You need to be 13 years old or above to join the vTime network. This is the minimum age suggested by Oculus for the Gear VR headset.

How do I report a bug?

We have a bug reporting section on the vTime Forum, so head there to see if anyone else has reported your issue, and if not, let us know. Alternatively, email through feedback@vtime.net.

How do I give feedback on vTime?

We LOVE to hear what people think of the vTime network. Genuinely. And that's whether the opinion is good or bad. We're looking to the vTime community to help us evolve and shape the network into the communication tool that you want, so don't be shy in giving your opinion. We have a section on the vTime forums for your feedback, so head over there and share what's in your head with us. Email us on feedback@vtime.net.

What if there's a user that I don't like or that makes me feel uncomfortable?

We do our best to ensure vTime is a great place to be. If someone bothers you, block them. Open the menu, look at their avatar bubble, and select 'Block'. If you think their conduct was unacceptable, then report them too. After you've blocked, you'll receive an email which will ask if you want to report the user too. Reports are completely anonymous.
