      Not sure about it. Do check if in these Android versions you have YouTube with cardboard view available, then I guess they are compatible for VR.

        Do you mean App, Normally there are some youtube videos which meant for card board as like normal videos no need of any hardware just youtube, And googled one app which feasibles playing all youtube videos compatible for cardboard side by side vertically. What I am eager to know is can I watch mobile videos and some card board games, But known that for 180 and 360 degree video mode need gyroscope which is not avail in my mobile, Searching for alternative apps or games which doesn’t require gyroscope.

          Hi kalyan,
          I don’t think that’s possible. You need a gyroscope to use VR Headsets or Cardboard.
