We already knew thatGoogle is developing standalone headsets with HTC and Lenovo, with Qualcomm already building some reference devices. These VR headsets will not need any PC or smartphone to operate.
The company announced the next steps for its virtual and augmented reality technology on Thursday at its annual I/O developers conference in Mountain View, California.
Also in the pipeline is the 2.0 release of the platform, called Daydream Euphrates, which will be available for all headsets, and will give you the ability to cast whatever you are seeing in VR to your television screen in the living room. Our friends from SlashGear map out the changes in more detail (via the source link below), but it sure is an exciting time for VR and Google. Unlike Facebook, whose idea was to use VR to make social networking more interactive, Google showed its plans to get into regular life activities, like teaching for example, and enhance the experience using upgraded hardware and powerful software.
Interestingly, Clay Bavor also teased that the new VR headsets will run with "dramatically improved tracking" that uses multiple sensors in the device, instead of utilizing an external camera.
If no one's nearby, you can take a screenshot or record a video of what you see, like a level of a VR game. The update is codenamed Daydream Euphrates and it will be available to all phones with Daydream support later this year. This means that the user will be able to share his/her VR experience from his/her headset with others through a compatible Smart TV.
YouTube will be getting a VR version of its mobile app. This seems an very bad lot similar to Facebook Spaces.
There is still no word on pricing for these headsets, and that remains the biggest stumbling block for mainstream adoption of VR.
Google I/O 2017 is pretty much over, and we saw some pretty interesting announcement during the conference.
Last, but not least, the firm also mentioned its push towards building up WebVR standards, highlighting Chrome VR - coming to Daydream this summer - which will allow you to browse the web in virtual reality.
