Google first started its venture into virtual reality with Google Cardboard back in 2014. Since then we’ve seen the company’s ambitions in VR and AR continue to grow with the introduction and launch of the Daydream headsets in 2016, and new standalone Daydream headsets coming later this year. A look at the company’s job listings so far this year reveals Google’s expanding commitment and investment in VR and AR.
Google is continuing to grow its AR and VR teams and shows no signs of stopping any time soon. Road to VR has assembled data showing that so far in 2017 the company has listed an average of six new job postings per month—either explicitly for the AR/VR team, or in tangential roles—totalling 49 new listings in the first eight months of the year.
