WebVR 1.1 support beta for Android Chrome has launched following an announcement during the W3C Workshop on Web & VR in November. Developers can now apply for free access to the WebVR and GamePad API via the Origin Trials Guide, and find out more information about developing VR apps for the web on the developer site and the WebVR Slack channel.
WebVR support for Chrome allows users to directly access VR web content through their browser, eliminating the need to download individual apps. Whilst this initial launch is a beta version designed for Daydream and intended to give developers a chance to start working with WebVR in Android Chrome, a full public version is set for release in January. After that, Google plans to bring Windows Chrome WebVR, bringing VR web content to users of major platforms like HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
