Google's Daydream VR platform has YouTube, Google Streetview, and now it has Chrome.
A VR-ready version of Google's Android Chrome app is now available to download to work with-ready phones, or on the standalone headset, Google announced today. It's an overdue move, since Facebook's standalone VR headset already has a built-in web browser, and so does the Samsung . Google had previous, more experimental ways of browsing the web in Daydream VR via versions of Chrome, but this new standalone app should tie together all the loose ends and offer a complete solution.
The Daydream VR version of Chrome adds a widescreen Cinema View for playing back videos in VR, and supports WebVR apps. Google's YouTube app recently(but not the Oculus Go), helping Google's VR-ready videos be seen more easily. Chrome should help non-YouTube VR videos on the web to play a little more easily for Daydream VR users in return.
