Take a tour of Australia using the new Qantas VR app
Australian airline Qantas has announced a brand new Virtual Reality (VR) application for Android and iOS, which will allow users to take a guided tour of some of the world-famous landmarks and national parks in Australia without having to leave their home.
“Our aim with the new virtual reality app is to connect with travelers by showcasing parts of Australia they might not be familiar with,” said Qantas executive Olivia Wirth, who then went on to add that firm hopes the experience will encourage people to visit the region.
Users that have enjoyed using Qantas VR will also have the opportunity to book a flight to see the landmarks they’ve visited in person from within the application itself. However, the firm did reveal that it didn’t primarily develop the service to sell flights, but rather to educate people.
The Qantas VR application is compatible with Google Cardboard/Daydream, Samsung Gear VR and other devices. Alternatively, if you can’t get your hands on a VR headset, you’ll simply be able to watch videos in landscape mode on your smartphone.
