Google Aims to Make VR Content Creators Happy
Tech companies that are planning on doing big things in virtual reality, will need to make sure that the content creators are happy.
Google is talking to developers that are producing Android apps for Cardboard, about creating in-app purchases with the VR headset. Google will be speaking with developers at their developer get together in May as well as The Game Developers Conference later in March.
One of the ways Google is exploring for consumers to be able to make in app purchases is through gaze tracking. Gaze tracking is a standard VR tool that allows users to move their head to control the cursor.
As of January 2016, Google claims to have shipped over 5 million Cardboard units and uses have downloaded over 25 million apps since 2015. Out of those 24 million, 10 million were between October through December 2015.
