Not the thing you should be using any more!
WebVR has been replaced by the WebXR Device API
, which has wider support, more features, better performance, and supports both VR and AR. This page is preserved as a historical reference, but the information on it is no longer relevant and you almost certainly want to be looking at immersiveweb.dev
What is WebVR?
WebVR is an open specification that makes it possible to experience VR in your browser. The goal is to make it easier for everyone to get into VR experiences, no matter what device you have.
How do I experience WebVR?
You need two things to experience WebVR: a headset and a compatible browser.
I’ve already got a headset.
Select your headset below to find out which browsers work best for you.
Works best with Chrome
on Android devices.
You can still experience WebVR content in other browsers on Android and iOS, but it might not be as smooth since those browsers don’t fully support WebVR.
Samsung Gear VR
Does not currently support WebVR.
Windows Mixed Reality headsets
I don’t have a headset.
For the best performance and most features, you can use a VR headset connected to a computer, like Oculus Rift
or HTC VIVE
. Those will allow for higher framerates, higher resolutions, and even let you walk around in VR.
Or, on some sites, you can just use your computer or phone without a headset. You won’t be able to see in 3D or interact as fully in most VR worlds, but you can still look around in 360 degrees.
