Amazon Prime video is now available on Oculus Quest, Oculus Go, and even Gear VR.
The streaming service joins Netflix, YouTube and other services such as Showtime, ESPN and Fox, resulting in streaming video content appearing on the standalone Quest virtual reality helmet. Adding Amazon Prime to Oculus Go and Gear VR will be a pleasant surprise for the owners of these headsets.
Amazon Prime includes voice search and 360-degree video content. We hope that some of these applications will add support for offline viewing. Although Quest’s 64 GB is enough space for storing content, according to most people, this recommendation may change if some of these video applications start to support offline viewing.
Amazon says the service is available to customers in the United States and the UK. Prime members have access to the Prime Video catalog of content, including VR video, while ordinary users can only watch their personal VR library.
Bigscreen has recently updated its service to support social co-viewing of over 50 television stations. While Amazon Prime is a single-user experience, the service allows people to add services such as CBS and HBO. This means that between Bigscreen, Amazon Prime, Netflix and YouTube VR, Facebook headset users can choose the best source of streaming content available on the Internet.
