Google Chrome Will Be Ready For Web-Based VR

Users can start test out the web-based VR feature by installing the beta version of Chrome 79.

Virtual reality technology has taken the world by storm with many speedy advancements. However, most VR-powered systems are still in the very beginning when it comes to software and hardware supports. And now, Google is going to make a change as it announced to release the latest version of the Chrome browser that will keep up with web-based VR.

The popular browser will keep up with web-based VR.

According to the detailed information regarding the new Chrome 79 beta, there’ll be a new set of support for web-based VR. From that, developers can take advantage of the WebXR Device API and GamePad API to create a website with content like video games, 360-degree videos, and immersive art. Especially, users can experience the site on both a smartphone and a head-mounted display, for example, an Oculus Quest.

Chromium-based browsers like Edge, Oculus Browser, and Firefox Reality will also come with web-based VR soon.

In addition to Chrome, other Chromium-based browsers like Edge, Oculus Browser, and Firefox Reality will also soon come with web-based VR support. As expected, all the internet browsers will be up to par with AR-enabled features as well.  One of the most notable features coming with Chrome 79 is “Tab freezing.” The feature is designed to prevent unnecessary power consumption of the system when Google Chrome is running on low-power devices. In particular, the feature will suspend any tab that has been running on the background for over five minutes, excluding tabs playing music and videos.

Users can start test out the web-based VR feature by installing the beta version of Chrome 79 or wait for it until the official launch on Dec 10th.
