The VR industry is booming and all of the world’s biggest tech companies want a piece of the cake, Google included. Although, it should come as no surprise that Google is involved in the VR industry since it was among the first companies to introduce a VR platform which is called Daydream. Nonetheless, Google is looking to take things to the next level by adding support for the Chrome browser to Daydream.
Daydream VR Receives Chrome Support
People who have purchased a Daydream View headset which runs on smartphones should be happy to know that Chrome is now available to them.
Moreover, the VR version of Chrome ships with the same features that the original version of Chrome is known for. Not just that, but Google has made sure to include a few treats for VR fans such as a “cinema mode”.
New Cinema Mode
The addition of Chrome to Daydream View is great news for VR fans because it means they will be able to access a lot more 360-degree content from now. Things get even better since the VR version of Chrome will ship with a special known as “cinema mode” which optimizes webs videos for VR viewing.
Not the First Time
We should note that this is not the first time that Daydream View users have been able to access Chrome with the VR platform because Google already released a “test” version of Chrome VR.
Fortunately, the new Chrome is the final build and this means that it will not have any bugs to annoy people while they are watching or searching for VR content.
Improving Sales for Daydream VR
Google hopes that the addition of Chrome to Daydream VR will help the platform’s sales. This might prove to be true, but all that matter is the fact that Google is taking the VR industry in the right direction.
