VR in the Browser

VR in the browser?

If you are a de­veloper, find out about de­vel­op­ing VR in the browser in­stead.


How it works

Browsers provide a so called “API” that al­lows a web­site to ac­cess in­put devices and to provide visu­als for out­put-devices. The cur­rent stand­ard for this API is called WebXR Device API.


WebXR

In Decem­ber 2019 the WebXR Device API re­placed the rudi­ment­ary Web­VR API and be­sides im­prov­ing upon it ad­ded sup­port for Au­gu­mented Real­ity (AR), Mixed Real­ity (MR) and more (hence the ‘X’ as in ‘Any Real­ity’). Sup­port for this API is ad­ded to more and more browsers. As of Feb­ru­ary 2021 Mi­crosoft Edge, Google Chrome, Op­era, Sam­sung In­ter­net and Oculus Browser sup­port it, and Fire­fox has ex­per­i­ment­al sup­port that can be en­abled with a flag. To check if your browser is WebXR ready go to ht­tps://cani­use.com/webxr.

Just like VR tech­no­logy, WebXR is be­ing act­ively de­veloped. This means that there are new fea­tures be­ing de­veloped, tested and re­leased. Of­ten these fea­tures can be ac­cess long be­fore their of­fi­cially re­lease, like hand-track­ing.

Web­VR

Al­though “Web­VR” is of­ten used to say “VR in the browser” it ac­tu­ally is the name of the ini­tial API, that al­lowed web­sites to of­fer VR ex­per­i­ences. How­ever, since the re­lease of the WebXR Device API, sup­port has been de­prac­ted and the as­so­ci­ation of the name with the ori­gin­al API will van­ish over time.


In de­vel­op­ment

The VR fea­ture for browsers is still very young and un­der act­ive de­vel­op­ment and you will no­tice that some ex­per­i­ences or games don’t work in your browser or on your device. This is mostly due to ex­per­i­ences be­ing de­veloped for Web­VR and not be­ing up­dated. Games that are de­veloped for WebXR should not break, but fun­da­ment­al changes to the tech­no­logy are not im­possible. At Con­struct Ar­cade, we keep track of changes to the APIs and try to keep everything run­ning, take ad­vant­age of new pos­sib­il­it­ies and give you the best ex­per­i­ence that the cur­rent tech­no­logy has to of­fer.
