WebVR v1.1 (removed)
Adds input and output support for Virtual Reality head mounted displays, such as the Oculus Rift and Google Cardboard. This API being replaced by the WebXR Device API (https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/5680169905815552). The WebVR Origin Trial ended on July 24, 2018.
WebVR was never enabled by default in Chrome, and was never ratified as a web standard. The WebXR Device API (https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/5680169905815552) is the replacement API for WebVR, and is likely to ship in Chrome within the next several milestones. Removing WebVR from Chrome allows us to focus on the future of WebXR and remove the maintenance burden of WebVR (which has lived behind a flag for numerous milestones), as well as reaffirm that Chrome is committed to WebXR as the future for building immersive web based experiences.
