Developing for the Gear VR

You can develop apps for the Samsung Gear VR using the Vuforia 5 Unity Extension.

Vuforia 5 is compatible with the following versions when developing for the Gear VR:

  • Unity versions 5.3.1, 5.2.x, 5.1.3p1 and 4.6.7+. Unity 5.1.3p1 resolves performance issues experienced with earlier 5.x releases.
  • Oculus Mobile SDK versions,, and 0.5.0

Vuforia 5.5 supports a minimum of Unity 5.2.4.

Refer to the Vuforia Supported Versions guide and SDK Release Notes for the latest info on software version compatibility.

The steps for integrating Vuforia with the Oculus Mobile SDK are detailed in these articles:

Note: Some scenes in our sample apps (e.g. About Screen) have not been designed to support interaction with digital eyewear devices. You can omit these scenes from the Unity Build Settings when necessary.
