Google to Add Chrome to its VR Platform

Google is adding a little bit of Chrome into its VR platform, bringing the web browser to Daydream headsets, the company declared today. It’s been quite a while considering the depths of Google’s WebVR experimentation on desktop and mobile Chrome.

Google has been moving forward at a pretty slow rate with any big Daydream updates lately, all while Facebook’s Oculus has driven heavy news to its mobile platform thanks to new standalone hardware. Daydream rolled out its own positionally-tracked headset with Lenovo earlier this summer but a major lack of content has been the system’s biggest issue. Bringing the web to Daydream could help correct this, and directing more mobile developer attention to WebVR might be an upbeat move for Google as it looks to make content discovery more simple.
Last year, the company made it so that you could open WebVR content in mobile Chrome on your phone and then drop it into a Cardboard headset and check out the content, with this you’ll be able to launch inside VR, explore inside VR and then move onto something else.
You’ll also get incognito mode, voice search and access to your saved bookmarks.
