Samsung releases Milk VR in hopes to bring more content to the Gear VR
The Gear VR is Samsung’s recent foray into the virtual reality world, bringing an immersive digital content experience to anybody who is an early adopter of the new technology. The device launched a few weeks ago as an Innovator Edition, and up until now has only delivered a minimal amount of content to its users. The company hopes to get more content up and running on the VR headset with their release of Milk VR, a media content store build specifically for the headset.
The content included in the marketplace will cover music and videos, all available for download or streaming directly from the Milk VR app. The content store is launching as a technical preview, and Samsung promises to update content on a regular basis, giving early adopters enough music and videos to spend ample time with the device. So far, all content on the service is free to download and watch, though most of the offerings are only 1-10 minutes in length. Milk VR aims to be the central marketplace for all video content that comes to the Gear VR. Though the selection is pretty limited thus far, if you’re an owner of the headset, you’ll likely be missing out if you pass on downloading it.
Milk VR is available starting today for anyone who has the headset. Remember, you need a Galaxy Note 4 to run the Gear VR, so keep that in mind before you make any big purchases.
