Virtual reality hardware support for Unity
Several types of Virtual Reality (VR) hardware have Unity support. Unity natively supports some devices. Plugins can enable support of some other devices.
If a device has native Unity VR support, then it produces better performance than devices that are supported using plugins. This is because Unity implements internal optimizations for the devices with native Unity VR support.
The following devices have native Unity VR support:
- Oculus Rift.
- Samsung Gear VR.
- PlayStation VR.
- Microsoft Hololens.
The following devices have Unity VR support using plugins:
- Google Cardboard.
- HTC Vive and other devices the SteamVR platform supports.
Several other devices can be supported using the Open Source Virtual Reality (OSVR) plugin for Unity.
