With virtual reality initiatives hitting a major increase, it was only a matter of time before a social virtual reality platform became available and that is exactly what Oculus Social is. Created by the company that developed the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, Oculus Social allows users to join their companions in an alternate reality.

This brand new application has been specifically designed for the Samsung Gear VR and allows users to create a profile and search for others within the social network by a real name or Oculus username.

The launch of Oculus Social is just ahead of a line of social games that will be arriving on the Oculus Gear VR. With Oculus Social launching within the same time, users will be able to use the platform to meet friends and compete with others from around world.
