ARTS/CULTURE: Google’s Virtual Reality Museums App

Google’s Arts & Culture VR app, which they released earlier this year allowing users to walk through museums all over the world, is now available for Android operating systems.

Users can take virtual tours through art exhibits and zoom in on pieces to see details up close. This app enables people to see works they may never be able to travel to in real life.

The app also provides daily news and special curated exhibits, as well as a search tool that allows users to search for a certain artist, time period, subject, or even color.

Google has also launched an Arts & Culture website where users can take the virtual tours online if their phone is not compatible with the app.
