People have been looking forward to Google releasing Chrome browsing in VR for a while now and it has finally arrived. The company released a Chrome version that is supported by both Daydream View and Lenovo Mirage Solo as well as other Daydream stand-alone headsets.

According to Google, most of the features that you can find on the desktop and mobile versions are available in the VR app as well. You can browse using Incognito Mode, save bookmarks as well as retrieve them.

What is unique about the version is the Cinema Mode, which has been developed specifically for the Daydream platform. The Cinema Mode optimizes videos for the VR headset and users can even perform actions via voice command.

Google also mentions there are a few other features that were designed for the Daydream platform only, but does not go into further details about them.

If you have any of the VR headsets mentioned above, you can update Chrome on Android via the Google Play Store and then launch the app from the home screen of the device. This new support though is available only on the latest Chrome mobile version.
