Microsoft today announced that the company is bringing support for WebVR to Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. With WebVR, users can experience Virtual Reality content from their web browser on a Virtual Reality headset such as the Oculus Rift. WebVR support on Microsoft Edge may also be useful for the Windows Holographic Shell on Windows 10, which is expected to arrive sometime later this year. For those unfamiliar, Microsoft will be allowing virtual reality headset owners to use Windows Holographic on their Windows 10 PC — therefore, Microsoft Edge supporting WebVR can turn out to be very useful.
WebVR is already supported in browsers like Google Chrome and Firefox, but it’ll be coming to Microsoft Edge in the near-future. At the moment, Microsoft isn’t sharing many details about WebVR on Microsoft Edge. While there isn’t any official info on when the company plans to release this feature, we suspect it’ll be coming with Windows 10 Redstone 2 which is expected to arrive in early 2017.
