Samsung Gear 360 Manager app will allow you to link your Samsung Gear 360 action camera to your samsung devices. The two can pair-up wirelessly, allowing you to view your captured photos and videos on your smartphone. But this still isn’t ideal because your smartphone can’t present 360-degree content without scrolling. This is why you’ll need to then pair your smartphone to your Gear VR headset.
Up until now, most of these features were exclusive to the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and Galaxy S6 Edge+, but XDA user Bin4ry has successfully ported them to work with pretty much any device running Android 5.0 and above. You should be able to use the app now even with non-Galaxy devices, or older Galaxy devices which are not officially supported by Samsung. I myself use it with a Sony Xperia Z5 without problems now
- Removed device lock
- Forced 4K Video support, this way the app does NOT downgrade videos to 2k for other devices than Galaxy S7!
- Several Mods needed to get the app running on non-galaxy devices!
- You need to be on Android 5.0 or higher (App depends on API Level 21!)
- You need to install Samsung Accessory Service from playstore Link (they come preinstalled on many Samsung phones and the playstore may tell you incompatible )
