We cannot deny the fact that Virtual Reality is the future of tech. When the whole tech industry is working on either manufacturing headsets or compatible content, Samsung has shocked everyone by coming up with an app called Samsung Milk VR that allows you to watch VR content without Gear VR headset. Does that mean VR headsets would be gone even before they properly settled down in the market?


When you download Samsung Milk VR, you will be able to download as well as watch VR content on your Samsung phone even without Gear VR. And if there is content, you wish to watch later on the headset, you can do that too. This app works only on the following phones:

  1. Galaxy S7,
  2. Galaxy S7 edge,
  3. Galaxy Note 5,
  4. Galaxy S6,
  5. Galaxy S6 edge, and
  6. Galaxy S6 edge+
