Google Play apps on Gear?

edsager1edsager1 Posts: 1
Hello All,

I have installed several VR apps from the Google Play store, all of which say they are compatible with Samsung Gear VR.

How do I access these apps when I have plugged my Note 8 into the Gear VR headset?

Thank you,

    I'm not sure if any Play Store app is compatible with the Gear VR. There are workarounds to enable you to run Cardboard apps without starting the Oculus home when inserting the phone in the Gear VR, but in my experience it's not worth the trouble.
