I received this camera as part of the upgrade package with my Note 8 years ago (about 2017). I just came across some photos I'd taken with this fun toy. I should try and find and start playing again, but anyone know if it is compatible with the newest Android OS and phones (I have a Note 20 Ultra) - I know that Samsung have dropped support for their VR glasses (that used the Gear 360 output) from the same time.

Specs indicate Android 5.0 minimum. Which Android version are you using for your phone?

"On your phone, navigate to and open Play Store. Search for and then select Gear 360. Make sure you select Samsung Gear 360 (New) to get the latest version of the app, and then tap Install. Once it downloads and installs, you can pair your Gear 360 to your phone."

"Smartphone compatibility

Galaxy S8, S8+, S7, S7 Edge, Note5, S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, A5/A7 (2017) running Android 5.0 or later."

Never buy version 1.0 of anything.
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
