Question in reference to Oculus App

I own a Samsung Gear VR with controller and I wanted to know if the Oculus app works with a different brand VR headset because I'm interested in buying another one but I still want to keep my gear VR.

I don't know for certain, as I only have the Gear VR, but I would assume other headsets would require the installation of an app from the maker of the headset, and your Gear VR games would remain tied to the Oculus App (I.E. Steam games on the computer vs Blizzard Games on the computer, each company has their own software platform that you can launch games from). I don't think you would be able to play the Oculus games on a different headset without some kind of hack.

The Oculus mobile app works only with Gear VR headsets.
