Google is letting everyone browse the web in the privacy of virtual reality. Google infuses Chrome browser in its Daydream VR headset. This is the epitome of ‘private’ mode where you will no longer need to protect your browsing and viewing habits simply because there are humans around.
This version of Chrome is available as an update in the Google Play store. It is no different from a full-fledged browser that includes syncing functionality, voice search, the most important incognito mode, and more. The browser, additionally, is also optimized to take advantage of the VR controller.
“With Chrome now integrated into Daydream, you can start browsing on your phone, whether it is reading your favorite news article or watching a YouTube video, and easily switch to your headset,” says Google. As told by Google, all it takes to switch to the new experience is to update to the latest version of the Chrome browser on your Android mobile devices.
Google is also said to be working on a few more interesting features for the VR platform. One such feature that drastically improves the VR-browsing experience is the “cinema mode”. The feature introduces helpful-sounding, and streams optimized web videos that seem more immersive than before.
Google’s Daydream headset, since its launch in 2016, has already won many hearts with its comfy design, and now with the hard-to-resist features infused into it, especially the ever-popular Chrome browser, it is sure to outclass its competitors in the ‘virtual world’.
