Amazon has launched a new Prime Video VR app for Oculus virtual reality headsets.
This means that owners of the Oculus Go, Oculus Quest, and Samsung Gear VR will get access to the streaming platform in VR.
Prime Video On Oculus VR Headsets
Oculus made the announcement in a blog post, saying that users in the United States and the United Kingdom can now use the app.
Amazon also launched a dedicated page for Prime Video VR, explaining how to install the app on the various headsets and highlighting some of its shows.
Prime subscribers can have the expansive library of the platform at their fingertips, meaning they can watch every TV show and movie it has. On top of that, there are 10 handpicked 360-degree videos available, among which are the Emmy-nominated short film INVASION! and the documentary Greenland Melting. Oculus says that more VR content like these are coming in the near future.
Non-Prime members won't have access to VR-specific content, but they can view whatever they have in their personal library.
It's also worth mentioning that the app also has support for voice-powered search, allowing to browse through the streaming platform's catalogue without lifting a finger.
Surprisingly, the Oculus Rift isn't in the mix. It seems that Prime Video VR is only for Oculus' untethered headsets.
What To Watch
As highlighted by the companies, users can watch Prime Video originals such as Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Bosch, Carnival Row, Good Omens, The Man in the High Castle, Fleabag, The Grand Tour, Catastrophe, and Guava Island.
Just to reiterate, the Prime Video VR app is now available from the Oculus Store for Oculus Go, Oculus Quest, and Gear VR owners in the United States and the United Kingdom. Prime members can watch every TV show and movie the platform has to offer, as well as 360-degree VR content.
