Just yesterday Google announced Android Nougat and this sweet update will bring along Daydream VR as the new, official virtual reality platform. Until then, though, Chrome will have its own VR support for all web pages that can be seen in virtual reality #realitymagic #softwaremagic
The latest builds for Chrome beta come with a WebVR setting that allows compatible devices to see websites built with VR in mind. Chrome Dev could also come with a VR Shell. That means you could see web pages in VR with any device – Gear VR, Cardboard or any other that supports Daydream.
If you have Chrome Dev on your computer, check it out at chrome://flags/#enable-vr-shell. For now, it is inactive, but will soon work and let us interact with publishers in other ways.
Google’s version of WebVR will not only allow you to see newer sites in virtual reality, but all websites that have VR support.
