Social VR Launches On Samsung Gear; Oculus Rift Next

Virtual Reality just went social and the first offering from a major player is coming to mobile-based VR viewers with immersive VR system support next year. While social VR was also an area of
focus at a recent VR Hackathon, Oculus just launched two new social-based VR offerings called Rooms and Parties, which are geared toward enabling social interaction and engagement within a singular
virtual environment. Oculus Parties are voice-only calls integrated directly into the VR environment. The calls are limited to three friends at a time, according to Oculus.
