Ultralight dark matter models have recently gained interest due to its small scales predictions. Their small masses may let them behave as a collection of waves, leading to new phenomena such as a suppression in the mass power spectrum on small scales, the presence of characteristic interference patterns, the formation of soliton cores.  In this talk I will consider an ultralight vector field dark matter (VFDM) model with an  homogeneous background field pointing in a given direction.   
Vector fields source anisotropies in the early universe characterized by a shear tensor which rapidly decays once the fields start oscillating, making them viable dark matter candidates. I will present recent results on the study of the evolution of the background universe with VFDM and  large-scale cosmological perturbations in the linear regime, such as  the  matter power spectrums defined for wave vectors with a given direction.
