Earlier this year, Plex jumped into VR with a Google Daydream app that puts you and up to four of your buddies into a virtual movie screening room. Now the media server company is bringing Plex VR to another platforms: Gear VR with Oculus

Just like on the Daydream version, Plex users on Samsung's VR platform can watch videos in a virtual apartment, drive-in movie theater or just a blank void. According to Variety, though, the social features haven't been implemented as of yet. The company's playful blog post notes that its customers can no longer give the app a one-star rating simply because it isn't on their platform of choice anymore, though it does promise to continue to improve the Daydream app as well.

Update, 4/6/18, 1PM ET: This post has been updated to clarify Plex VR is now available on Gear VR, not Gear VR and Oculus headsets.
