With the VR game really heating up over the Game Developers Conference, does it come as any surprise that Google is reportedly working on something that mixes the world of VR with its Android operating system? Probably not.




The report is coming from The Wall Street Journal and its "two unnamed sources" who say that the Mountain View-based search giant is working on a version of Android that can power VR applications. The Journal reports that "tens of engineers" are working on the Android VR project, which should end up being free like Android is for tablets, smartphones and wearables.


The WSJ reports that Android VR has Clay Bavor and Jeremy Doig leading the project, where Bavor was "partly responsible for Google Cardboard" reports The Verge.
