Samsung smartphone owners who also use the Gear VR headset can now check out an updated version of the Samsung Internet web browser. Version 4.2 includes some new features, including a way to add custom backgrounds to make your virtual reality browsing experience a bit more colorful.
The backgrounds come from premium images that have been created by the cloud graphics company OTOY. They are designed to offer Samsung Internet users more of a PC desktop experience when they use the app to check out web sites while wearing the Gear VR accessory.
Gear VR owners can download version 4.2 of the Samsung Internet app now from the Oculus Store. In addition to serving as a web browser, the app allows owners to view any images or video stored on their smartphone with its File Explorer feature.
How often do you use your Gear VR? Will you be adding custom backgrounds?
