Gear VR won’t work on Galaxy S6 and S6 edge with Android 6.0 beta firmware

Samsung had announced that it was looking for beta testers for Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge in the UK, and then it released the beta firmware yesterday. A lot of users have installed the Android 6.0 beta update on their devices already.

We’ve also listed some of the new features and changes that were introduced with the Marshmallow update on the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. Now, we’ve noticed that the Gear VR doesn’t work with the beta firmware. It has been mentioned in the Galaxy Beta Program app that the Gear VR will resume working on the final release of Android 6.0 update for these devices.

If you plan to enjoy movies and games during Christmas holidays on your Gear VR, don’t install the beta update. You should wait for the final update, which will be released in the next couple of months. Of course, do let us know about your experience with Android 6.0 if you have already taken the leap with the beta!
