Samsung Gear VR users will now have access to the New York Times’ VR experiences and its Daily 360 content, according to a recent announcement on the Oculus Blog.
“We’re excited to launch our NYT VR app on Oculus and Gear VR,” said Varun Shetty, Executive Director, Strategy and Business Development. “Building a home for our our award-winning virtual reality journalism on the Oculus platform was a top priority for The Times in 2017. We’re looking forward to building a strong relationship with Oculus and working with them to push forward the virtual reality medium and news efforts within VR.”
“VR has proven to be a valuable tool for journalism. With this immersive medium, we’re able to take our audience directly to the stories that matter—from an ice shelf in Antarctica to the frontline of Fallujah—to better understand the world around us,” said Marcelle Hopkins, Deputy Director, Video and Co-Director, VR.
