To sustain its reputation and vicinity, Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google has rolled out a new technology. Google Sprayscape maybe at its infancy stage but it is likely to become the next big thing given the massive hailing of virtual reality. The app, which was launched last year, is Google’s contribution towards its Android Experiments program. The sole purpose of what looks like a weird platform is to give direction to developers on what to expect when building Smartphone apps.
The app will be taking advantage of a phone’s camera to capture 360-degree photos. Apparently, a majority of people do not have access to 360-degree cameras. It is expected that its launch and entry into the market will build more passion for Android Experiments among developers. After all, the world is awash with an array of developments and experiments.
Google Sprayscape: What to expect
Google Sprayscape is perhaps one of the many apps that the technology world needs. Why? Because it is one of the many that is designed to break out of the standard one, in any case, it adorns creativity and innovative features. The app will use the Android phone to smash up and “spray” photos. It is also possible to hold down to expand the area of the picture being taken. The results may just be trippy images that can be uploaded to Google drive from where they can be re-explored at will. However, viewing them from in a browser works pretty well
In a blog post, Glenn Cochon, Google Creative Lab Senior Designer wrote, “We love virtual reality (VR). And we love taking pictures.”
How much more will people embrace the new app?
Apparently, Google focus is in letting people develop individual “VR-ish,” hence chances of having app adopted are very high. The app, which is not yet available on play store, will make use of Google’s Cardboard SDK to access a phone’s gyroscope data. This will make viewing easier even though the utilization of an average browser is still recommended.
Google Sprayscape is currently available on Android only, but the company says an iOS version launch is in expectation. Google’s stock trading at $811.77, an increase of $2.20 or 0.27%
