A Bigscreen update brings support for Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ and other streaming services.

The VR Bigscreen app is designed for shared virtual reality movie and movie nights. Users can meet in virtual living rooms and cinemas and watch blockbusters, 3D movies and TV content together on the big screen. Movie rentals and desktop sharing are also possible.

Bigscreen’s goal is to become a complete video multimedia platform. As of April 2022, the VR app supports YouTube sharing, and the latest update for Meta Quest and PC-VR adds more streaming services: Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, Twitch, and PlutoTV.

Requirements for Amazon Shared Monitoring

Streaming services are provided by an in-app browser optimized for VR use, ensuring full platform functionality in virtual reality. The feature supports dynamic lighting, in which light emitted from the screen is realistically reflected from the surroundings, creating a cinematic feel.

The VR application mainly ensures that the content is displayed and synchronized in VR. The big screen emphasizes that, unlike a physical living room, all viewers must have a active subscription to Amazon Prime or Disney+ and be connected to services.

Content may vary by region and is only accessible in Private Rooms. If any of the parties are missing content, that person will not be able to watch.

More new features in the pipeline

Netflix is ​​still missing, but according to founder and CEO Darshan Shankar, the team is working on a “powerful VR web browser” that will keep apps and websites running smoothly. “We will look into it,” Shankar wrote on Twitter.

In 2023, Bigscreen plans to deploy more websites, games and streaming services. A friends system and avatars 2.0 are planned for the start of this year, with hand tracking support to be added later. The company also said it was working on a “secret project”. So Bigscreen still has a lot up its sleeve.
