About Magenta VR
The Magenta Virtual Reality app for iOS, Android, Daydream and Oculus pulls together the VR and 360° sports, music, educational, and entertainment packages provided by Deutsche Telekom and various partners. The app is one of the first VR applications to add a VR social platform, the “Lounge” room, where users can hang out together as avatars. They can use this closed environment to chat and explore the offerings in the app in good company.
A second room, the “Cinema”, provides a virtual venue for users to watch a range of 2D content or their own pictures and videos.
The Magenta VR app works both on smartphones and with stand-alone VR headsets. For a fully immersive experience, users should opt for the latter or add a mounted headset to their smartphone. The app, including all content and functions, is available free of charge in app stores.
