Google has launched its Cardboard Camera app for iOS devices, which is now available to download on iPhone and iPad running iOS 8.0 or later. The Cardboard camera app allows you to capture and share moments with virtual reality (VR) photos. You can capture 3D 360-degree virtual reality photos that can be viewed on the phone using Google Cardboard or other VR headsets. The app was released for Android devices in December last year.
The VR photos captured using the Cardboard app are three-dimensional panoramas that let you experience scenery and sound (recorded while you took the photo) in every direction and in 3D, making near things look near, and far things look far.
How to Capture the VR photos using Google’s Cardboard Camera app:
“To capture a VR photo, hold your phone vertically, tap record, then turn around as though you’re taking a panorama.” You can view these VR 360-degree photos using a VR viewer like Google Cardboard or any other VR headsets.
Google has also introduced the sharing feature within the Cardboard app on both iPhone and Android devices. You can now share your outdoor moments with your family and friends who were not with you to experience those thrilling moments.
