Google has announced that with latest version of its Chrome browser, it is bringing VR to the web. This allows users not have to use a separate app or YouTube to browse through the virtual reality content.

Google says that users with Daydream-compatible phones and Daydream View headset will get the fully immersive experience but users on other smartphones and computers can also go through the content. Google has mentioned some of the websites that already support VR content and says that some more are coming up soon.

Some of the websites mentioned by Google include Matterport’s library (with 300,000+ celebrity homes, museums, canyons, iconic architecture and other real places), Within, Sketchfab (community hub for VR content), and WebVR Lab from PlayCanvas.

The search giant says that it wants to bring the virtual content to everyone, on any device, and that in coming months it will add support for more VR headsets including Google Cardboard.
