The Wall Street Journal: Google working on VR version of Android
According to the The Wall Street Journal Google has formed a team that worked on the version of Android devices for virtual reality (VR). The news should not cause surprise especially since virtual reality is formed as the next really big thing in the technology world. The latest example comes from MWC 2015, where HTC revealed Vive – VR goggles. WSJ sources commented that team of engineers work on the version of the operating system of Google, which is compatible with similar devices and which will operate virtual reality applications.
If news sources are correct, the special version of Android will also be distributed free of charge. Google has refused to comment on the leaked rumors. From the WSJ added that the development of the new version of Android is in the hands of Clay Bavor and Jeremy Doyg. Bavor had actively participated in the creation of Google Cardboard – virtual reality glasses made of cardboard used with a smartphone. Currently the associated application is downloaded over 1 million times from Google Play store.
