Google has this week announced the launch of a new service that has been designed to make getting VR content into your apps and websites easier.

Called Google VR View, it will allow developers to add 360 VR images or videos into both applications or websites, allowing users of the service to view interactive content from their smartphone and Google Cardboard.

With Google VR View, you can embed content into native applications by embedding what’s called a “VR view”, to do so, developers just need to add the Cardboard SDK to their iOS or Android app and add a few lines of code.

Google explained more:

On the web, embedding a VR view is as simple as adding an iframe on your site. We’re open-sourcing the HTML and JavaScript for web developers on github, so you can self-host and modify it to match your needs.

From travel and real estate to news and entertainment, we hope embeddable VR views make it quick and easy to share your story and build immersive and engaging visual experiences your users will love. We’re excited to see what you create.

Google has also announced a native Cardboard SDK for iOS, which has been packaged as a single CocoaPod in Objective-C, and will include all of the same features that is featured in the Cardboard SDK for Android.
