View a VR Experience on my mobile device

There are two way of opening a VR experience on your phone:

1. Opening a VRE link directly on your phone

2. Sending a VRE link from your desktop / tablet to your phone

 

1 Opening a VRE link directly on your phone

If you open a VRE link directly on your phone (e.g. from an email, from a website, etc.), the Virtual Reality experience will open automatically in  'fishtank' mode, which allows you to experience the scene as an interactive 360 degree panoramic directly in your browser (no need for a VR headset!).

 

To change your view, just drag the image in the direction you want to look.   view-mobile2.PNG

To view the experience immersively on your VR headset, tap the View-in-Headset button

Follow the instructions to download and install the viewer app for your phone. Yulio currently supports the following platforms:

1. Android Cardboard

2. iOS Cardboard

3. Samsung/Oculus GearVR

After installing and running the viewer app, you will be promoted to insert the phone in your headset where you will now be able to see the VR experience in full immersive stereoscopic mode.

Tip:  You only need to install the app once; after the app installed, clicking on the View-in-Headset button will directly launch the viewer app and show the selected VR experience.  

Tip for GearVR users:  When you install the viewer app for the first time on GearVR, there is one extra step you must complete in order to view the selected VR experience: After the app is installed, return to your browser and tap the  "OPEN IN GEAR VR" button - this will launch the viewer app and automatically display the selected VR experience.

Sending a VRE link from your desktop / tablet to your phone

First open the VRE link on your desktop - this will display the Virtual Reality experience in 'fishtank' mode, which allows you to experience the scene as an interactive 360 degree panoramic directly in your browser.

To send it to your phone, click the View-In-Headset button

Enter the phone number of your phone and select Send.

 

Tip:  If your phone cannot receive text messages, tap 'Can't receive text messages'

Tip: If you are using a Samsung phone (e.g. Galaxy S6/7/8), the text method may not work (Samsung is working on a fix!).  If have any trouble on these devices, tap on the 'Can't receive text messages' link instead of the text link.

 

Open the browser on your phone and navigate to 'go.yulio.com' (no www!) then enter the three digit code provided.
