How to get your Samsung Gear VR Device ID and share your Gear VR App with Clients
If you’re developing a virtual reality app for the Samsung Gear VR, there are a couple of key steps that you will need to take to get your apps to work before they are officially published into the Oculus Home store. Thankfully, the process is pretty easy to follow thanks to our handy little guide…
If you’ve been asked by us or your VR development agency to send them your “Device ID” then you will need to follow Step 1 to Step 4 to get enable your handset to run the in-development application.
If you’re a VR developer, follow all of the steps until the end of the page.
To get started, we need to get the “Hardware Serial” from the Samsung device that the APK needs to be installed on.
The handset Hardware Serial (or Device ID) is NOT the same as the IMEI number or Android Device ID. Do not send these numbers to your developer as they will not work. Follow these next steps instead 🙂
Step 3: Tap on the “Hardware Serial” field to copy or share it.
Note: this is the Device ID or Hardware Serial number that you will need to give to your VR developer so they can send you example builds and un-published demos. Send your developer the number you have copied in this step.
