Samsung brings Milk VR service to the Gear VR

Samsung Gear VR

Samsung’s Gear VR Innovator Edition was quite limited in its approach when it was first launched. But with the recent addition of the Temple Run VR game, things look to be picking up pretty fast. The company has now announced its very own video streaming/download service to the wearable, dubbed as Milk VR. This will bring exclusive video content tailored specifically for the immersive 360 degree Gear VR experience.

Samsung is counting on developers and third party video providers to offer more content through the service in the coming days. It is important to note that Samsung is merely dubbing the Milk VR service as a technical preview at the moment, which means that a final version is still not there yet.

The app can be downloaded from the Gear VR home screen, so make sure you give it a go if you own the device (and a Galaxy Note 4). Samsung claims that users can stream or locally download content on the device to playback videos at a convenient time. Although the service is free for the users, it is said that Samsung is paying to bring them to the devices. This shows that Samsung is very keen to get users on board the virtual reality bandwagon. But will it pay off? Only time will tell.
