As part of the company’s growing commitment to virtual reality, Google has now added a VR section to the Play Store. Google was one of the first entrants into the field of VR with Google Cardboard, its low-cost VR headset that utilized users’ phones to function as the display. Since then, Google has invested more into VR through partnerships and most recently, through a restructuring and the creation of a dedicated virtual reality department.
Google is now making it even easier for users to discover more about VR by creating a virtual reality section within the Google Play Store. This section highlights the capabilities of VR headsets that utilize Google Cardboard software. It also gives users a few different options to purchase Google Cardboard-compatible VR headsets.
All of this comes amidst recent rumors that Google will soon launch a successor to Google Cardboard, while also pushing further into virtual reality tech and looking for the next breakthrough. With all of its resources, Google may very well find the next big thing in VR, paving the way for a very different future.
