Get Our Android App

A Vircadia Android app is being considered for the roadmap, most of the development work has been done but the work required to get it back rolling has to be taken into consideration.

Note

The app is designed for Daydream-ready phones only. Keep in mind, it cannot be used in Daydream View and is only available as a 2D application.

Vircadia has many virtual places where you can interact with other users and participate in various activities or events. We have modified several of Vircadia’s most popular virtual worlds to make them more accessible to Android users.
