The BBC has been running their Taster website for some time now, providing access to some of the other stuff that the broadcaster is doing that isn’t normally broadcasted, these include a range of experiments from trials of VR shooting all the way up to the binaural audio experiment that they released with an episode of Doctor Who some time ago.

Today they launched a new way to access all of that content with the release of a new iOS and Android app that allows users to access their experimental VR content right from their smartphones, instead of having to go to the website.

You can download for free on both the iTunes App Store and the Google Play Store today.

Once downloaded, you will be able to access a range of VR experiments from the BBC including a trailer for One Deadly Weekend in America, 360-degree videos from Planet Earth II, and more.

The BBC has said that they aim to expand this with more regular content as well as some new binaural audio content on top.

They hope that users will provide them with the feedback they need on this content in order to develop it before they roll it out fully.

You can read more about the launch at the source link below.
