When Samsung first launched the Gear VR, they did so alongside the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge as an "Innovator Edition". Since then, it's become a fully-fledged consumer product in the $99 Gear VR and now works with the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy Note 5 and of course the newly-launched Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. Samsung have taken a smart approach to virtual reality, partnering with the firm behind the Oculus Rift and more recently giving the headsets away free with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. Now, it appears as though Samsung is starting to add more and more to the overall experience the Gear VR has to offer. Most recently, that means adopting the WebVR standard.
Right now the amount of content that's available online using the WebVR standard is fairly thin on the ground, but with big names like Samsung now adopting the standard, this could lead to more content hitting the web. Regardless, this does bring a somewhat novel web browser that Samsung developed for the Gear VR up to standard with an emerging API that should become more useful and better utilized in the future. This is just one more example of more and more content becoming available for Gear VR and we're sure before long that Samsung's offering could be one of the most fully-featured mobile headset out there.
