Google Court One Of Vive’s Brightest
It looks like low-end of the VR market is just as prone to shake-ups as the high-end one, with Google announcing a partnership with the developer of one of the HTC Vive’s most popular applications.
Logan Olson, developer of popular VR-based music production tool SoundStage, will now be working directly with Google.
A Google spokesperson told The Verge: “We’re excited to welcome Logan to the Google VR team. As a leader in thinking about creating in VR with his app SoundStage, we’re really inspired by what he’s built and for the potential for VR and creativity.“
It’s expected that Olson will add some much needed software to the Daydream VR’s lineup.
Ironically, the best the VR application Google have produced to date has been the 3D art-focused Tiltbrush – available on both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift but not Google’s own headsets.
The company has since cut Daydream headset prices in order to grow sales of the product.
