Google Debuts Cardboard App, Cardboard Support for Street View

The Google Cardboard app offers demos to help users get started with the virtual reality viewer.

Google has announced its free Cardboard app is available in 39 languages across more than 100 countries on both iOS and Android devices. The app helps users setup their Cardboard virtual reality device, and includes a few demo ‘experiences’ to help users get started with the viewer.

Example experiences allow users to virtually travel to locations around the world, or view 3-D objects in a museum collection.

Google has also announced Cardboard support for its Google Street View app on iOS and Android. The app allows users to virtually travel the world, with images from Google and other contributors.

While Google allows users to create their own Cardboard viewers, a variety of ‘certified viewers,’ such as the Mattel View-Master, are also available for purchase.

Google Street View is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store and Google Play. As part of its latest update, the app has also been updated with new tips for first-time users.
