htc viveportThe HTC Vive VR headset is still relatively new which means like when smartphones were first launched, app selection and content that can truly take advantage of its technology aren’t as readily available. The good news for HTC Vive owners is that HTC has since launched the Viveport, an app store for all VR related content.

According to HTC, “Viveport will feature content across exciting, new categories for VR–like information, edutainment, social media, 360˚ video, news, sports, health, travel and shopping. The upcoming release will also introduce an update to Vive Home, which is our personal and customizable virtual space with interactive widgets and more.”

We know we said that VR content isn’t as readily available yet, but hopefully with the Viveport which acts as a dedicated VR app store, users will be able to find what they need and hopefully it will get more populated in the future. Unfortunately the Viveport won’t be launching just yet. HTC says that a developer beta will be available in a few weeks with the full release pegged for the fall.

Rikard Steiber, Senior Vice President of Viveport at HTC says, “We believe equal access to virtual reality experiences will make the world a better place for people and enterprises alike. Viveport will play an important role in giving access to virtual reality experiences that will enhance our daily lives and the way we connect with friends and family.”
