Using a controller on the Gear VR is a great way to control your avatar's movement in VR. AltspaceVR supports the use of Bluetooth controllers.
In order to pair your controller with your mobile device, please refer to the manufactureres suggested process for getting the device to recognize the controller.
While controller based movement is natural for users that are accustomed to gaming, please be aware that some people may experience nausea when moving their avatar in this manner. If you prefer to use a controller, we suggest taking it slow until you are accustomed to the sensation. We also suggest limiting diagonal motion, as it seems this can compound the effect.
