The Google application that puts the whole Earth at our disposal in virtual reality, already has support for Rift and Touch, and adds the possibility of searching for places.
Google has announced a new update for Google Earth VR, the application that allows us to enjoy the entire planet in virtual reality with total freedom of movement as if we were a bird. Among the new features is the possibility to search for places, typing the address or name, so you can quickly go to the desired place. Whether it’s our house or somewhere we were on vacation. In addition, they have added 27 new hand-selected locations that will help us discover some of the most incredible sites in the world, such as Table Mountain in South Africa, the Perito Moreno glacier in Argentina and Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany that inspired the Sleeping Beauty castle at Disneyland Hong Kong.
And finally, five months later, support for the Oculus virtual reality headset and Touch motion controllers also arrives. Google Earth VR is available for free on Steam (Vive version only) and the Oculus Rift store.
