Altspace VR is a social platform which you’ll need to sign up to in order to use. But you should do just that as the app offers a wholly original experience.

You basically hang out with other headset users in a virtual space where you can watch videos together, or chat using the mic on your phone. There’s also events, like quizzes and even Dungeons and Dragons games. You might also want to take in a stand up comedy show while you’re there.

Altspace is also cross-platform, so you’ll be mingling with other users who have different headsets, including the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Of course, with the Gear VR you’re somewhat limited movement-wise, but you can navigate through the virtual world by looking at an area and tapping the touchpad on the side of the Gear.

You can also share your web browser with other users, but to be honest that sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.
