Google’s brand new Cardboard Camera App is what you have to download today if you’ve got a Cardboard VR headset and an Android phone already!
Google’s “Cardboard Camera” lets you create and peruse 360° panoramic photos in virtual reality. It turns the smartphone in your pocket into a virtual reality (VR) camera. It’s simple to take a photo: just hold out your phone and move it around you in a circle. Later, when you place your phone inside a Google Cardboard viewer, you’ll get to experience something new: a VR photo.
VR photos are three-dimensional panoramas, with slightly different views for each eye, so near things look near and far things look far. You can look around to explore the image in all directions, and even record sound with your photo to hear the moment exactly as it happened.

With Cardboard Camera, anyone can create their own VR experience. So revisit the mountaintop that took hours to hike, or the zoo where you saw (and heard) the monkeys, or your birthday party with the cake out and candles still lit. Capture the moments that matter to you and relive them anytime, from anywhere. Get it here: Cardboard Camera is available on Google Play in 17 languages.
