Facebook Microsoft partnership, could that ever be a thing again?
Hey there's a developer mode option that sorta takes you into a vr screen with the phone display.. I think that's the mode you're looking for so here's how to get into the developer mode and activate that screen.
To get into gear developer mode you have to go
Go into Settings
Search for Gear VR Service
Tap VR Service Version a few times
Turn on Developer mode and Disable VR Home
I'm having the same problem right now my phone and Xbox broke at the same time so I was hoping this would work so I can reconnect with my friends I haven't talked to for months and play some games I didn't get to finish but after hours of trying to get this to work I got stuck with it being overly zoomed in.
