Google launches iOS version of Cardboard Camera app for taking VR-ready photos

Google released the iOS version of its VR camera app Cardboard Camera today, allowing iPhone users to take 3-D 360-degree panoramic pictures that can be viewed in mobile VR headsets like the Google Cardboard.

At the same time, the tech giant is launching another new feature for both versions of the app that lets users share virtual albums with anyone by generating a link that can be emailed, messaged or posted. Users can find the option to create this link in the share menu of their virtual albums.

Google also states that more than 5 million pictures have been taken with Cardboard Camera for Android so far, which was launched in December 2015.
