The social network will now let you post the same one click responses which you can add to any other post to VR videos as well. Oculus actually announced the news, who had also teased this back in March. The news relates specifically to watching videos through the Samsung VR, though other VR headsets will soon get the same feature soon.
For sure, there is no easy way of typing while you are in VR, with a big box strapped to your head and all, but the familiar six emojis are a much easier way of chatting without having to break the flow of the experience too much. According to Oculus, these same reactions will soon come to 360 photos in the coming weeks, which will also include the ability to see other people's reactions as well.
Facebook had bought Oculus for $2 billion a couple years ago.
