About the phone controller
Use your Android phone or iPhone to interact in VR.
- You need to use the phone that you paired with your VIVE Flow, and make sure your phone and VIVE Flow are connected via Bluetooth.
- Make sure the phone screen is unlocked.
- You can also use the VR controller or hand gestures to interact in VR. See About the VR controller or Hand tracking for details.
Phone controller interface
- In VR, look down on your hand holding the phone to see the controller layout. You can also see visual feedback when you tap the phone screen.
- To close the currently running app and go back to Home, open the VIVE menu, aim the beam on the Home image, and then select
Back to Home.
- Aim your phone forward and hold it parallel to the floor, and then tap and hold the screen with two fingers for two seconds to recenter the beam. Do this if the beam orientation is off or you can't see the beam in VR.
- Swipe vertically or horizontally to go through screens.
