Google releases unique VR photo capturing app
For all the Android users and only the Android users, Google has launched a totally new but experimental Virtual Reality (VR) camera app called ‘Sprayscape’ which is specially designed to capture pictures inside a 360-degree virtual sphere.
 
To capture a 360 degree photo, users are needed to point their phone at the subject and tap the screen to capture elements like faces and places.
 
These images will be afterwards joined to form a 360 degree image. 
 
The app can be used using both rear and front cameras to capture the photo which can be shared via unique URLs, emails and various social media. 
 
The photo can be viewed using VR headset. 
 
Interestingly, Google is calling Sprayscape an 'imperfect VR-ish camera app'.
