You can create a party using your Samsung Gear VR to chat or play games online with up to 3 of your friends. You can also invite your party to hang out in a room together. In order to join a party, you’ll need to allow Oculus access to your phone’s microphone. Once you join a party, we recommend that you wear headphones so that everyone can hear you well.
