With the update, Oculus said that it is making it even easier to watch 360-degree content in VR, with users able to connect their Facebook account to personalise their 360-degree Oculus video feed based on the pages and people they follow.
“In the coming weeks, you’ll be able to like and share your favourite Facebook 360 videos from within VR. Later this month, we’ll release new tools for developers that make it even easier to create more incredible social VR games and apps,” said Oculus in a blog post.
The firm is also adding other new social features. From today, users of Gear VR headsets, powered by Oculus, can create a profile and search for others on the platform by real name or Oculus username.
Oculus said it is also adding new, made-for-VR games to Gear VR that let users partner with friends or compete against people from all over the world.
“We’ve also added the ability to create rooms with friends in Oculus Social. Now you can watch Twitch or Vimeo streams in a room with people you know,” said Oculus.
