Google VR Shell Allows You to Browse the Web in VR
Google VR Shell is being added to Chrome so that users can browse the web with an immersive VR experience like no other. Google has played a vital role in VR for the web because of which VR ready sites have been made possible today. These VR ready sites are ready to be viewed in VR headsets directly.
But there are still plenty of sites out there that are not VR ready and do not support this technology. Google’s vision wth Google VR Shell is to enable the user to view the entire web in VR so that users do not need to take off their VR headsets from site to site.
The latest build of the Chrome Beta confirms Web VR compatibility and it is likely that with the Google VR Shell browsing the web in VR will not be a figment of the imagination but a reality.
Google’s Chromium Evangelist François Beaufort says:
“enable[s] a browser shell for VR” which “allows users to browse the web while using Cardboard or Daydream-ready viewers.”
VR may be relatively new and developers are still messing around with it. It seems that VR will go a long way and there are plenty of applications for VR in the market. Vr makes everything more immersive, from apps to games and from movies to the web.
It seems like only yesterday that we used to see this technology in movies like Star Trek and Star Wars. Now all that technology is coming to life. Goes to show that if you imagine something then you can create it as well.
The future is bright for VR tech. let’s see how soon we will be able to get Beta WebVR.
