Android Smartphone

What formats can I watch?

Android phones have a wide variety of capabilities, though they are generally good at playing video. Newer phones should be able to play 1920p videos. Some flagship phones (particularly those sold in Europe) can play 2300p VR videos. Older phones will be limited to lower formats. Test streaming in Play'aVR can be done to determine the capabilities of your specific phone; if you wish to download files and transfer them to your device and you'd like higher quality files, downloading from the GearVR section will work.

Watch streaming videos

For streaming playback we recommend using our web player. There are third-party player apps available, but we don't strictly recommend those as we can't guarantee reliability across updates.
