As announced by Microsoft, the Gear VR virtual reality headset is getting Xbox One controller support with Minecraft being the first compatible game. Meaning, you’ll be able to plug in your Xbox One controller to the Gear VR and play Minecraft: Gear VR with it (and other games in the future).
This compatibility will take effect following an update due in October. You have to then update your Xbox One controller as well and connect it to your smartphone via Bluetooth. This means, naturally, that you need a Bluetooth-enabled version of the Xbox One pad to take advantage of this (we got Bluetooth versions of the controller with the Xbox One S release).
Gear VR supports most modern Android phones from Samsung.
