WebVR now works with Google Cardboard

Google has expanded compatibility of the WebVR platform to Cardboard headsets, giving users the facility to launch virtual reality experiences through Chrome without having to download a special application.

When WebVR debuted back in February, it was only available for use with Daydream-compatible smartphones — but now pretty much anyone can access it using the $15 viewer.

There’s a caveat, though. At present, WebVR doesn’t work with iOS, which makes up a large chunk of Cardboard’s user base. However, it’s safe to say that we can expect support for Apple’s mobile operating system to be added in the near future.

Check out exactly what WebVR has to offer

If you’re not in possession of a Cardboard or Daydream Viewer, you can still check out exactly what WebVR has to offer by heading over to its showcase page. Just bear in mind that instead of looking around with your head, you’ll need to click and drag.
