Google is to make its popular Street View service available as a virtual reality app viewable on its budget headset Cardboard.
It has also released figures which suggest Cardboard could be a serious competitor to more expensive headsets.
Google Cardboard is now available in more than 100 countries and Cardboard-ready apps have been installed 15 million times, it said.
One analyst said Street View was a "natural fit" for virtual reality.
Google also announced that it has a growing number of certified viewers - including the Mattel View-Master and the Zeiss VR One GX - on sale, which are made of plastic and are more robust than the original cardboard viewer.
Windows Phone has always been a conundrum. It’s a platform filled with good ideas (I always liked Live Tiles I admit), but something kept it from being my smartphone go-to. With the Lumia 950 and 950XL, this a seemingly new experience altogether.
Panos Panay and the Microsoft Devices team just launched to new Windows 10 phones. These aren’t meant for international users or emerging markets. These are the heavy hitters—the Lumia 950 and 950XL. Much like the Surface is for Windows tablets, these Lumias are here to showcase the very best that Windows mobile can offer.
Right when you pick up these new Lumia phones, you’ll notice their lightweight. But it feels lightweight due to material sacrifice. When you hold the Galaxy S6 or an iPhone, the weight gives it some heft, sure, but that’s weirdly important in a device despite our obsession with thinner and lighter. It just makes it feel substantial.
