Virtual reality seems to be taking over recently, as you can hear something new about VR wherever you go. The new and exciting tech has both fascinated and amazed people of all ages as tech manufacturers pump out constant new features for the VR headsets.

Google is of course one of the big developers that are in the midst of the VR popularity, and it has already released its own VR headset called Google Daydream. With Google Daydream, users can benefit from a VR experience just by using their smartphones and the headset itself. At the moment only two devices are compatible with the Daydream, namely the Google Pixel and the Google Pixel XL, but more are on the way.

Even more recently however, Google achieved another feat in VR, and that is porting their Google Earth service directly into VR. This means that you will be able to fly around the various capitals of the world or get up close and personal with important landmarks such as the Grand Canyon.

This is just the next in Google’s many endeavors of innovating technology. Google Earth VR is bound to have a similar impact to that of the original Google Earth when it was released over a decade ago. The VR version will be free for anyone interesting in taking a trip across continents while in the comfort of their own homes, and will be available on the Steam store. The only note that must be address is the fact that Google’s newest addition to its catalogue of great services can be used only with the HTC Vive. So far, HTC’s headset is the only one supported for Google Earth VR. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to access the service if you have another brand of VR .
