New levels mean more soldiers and of course more of a thrill.
4. Cardboard Camera (Android & iOS)
Don’t confuse Cardboard Camera with Google Cardboard; these are two different apps developed by Google. As the name suggests, the Cardboard Camera app allows users to take 360-degree pictures via their Android and iOS devices.
5. Expeditions (Android & iOS)
Expeditions is available under the Education category in Google’s Play Store, however, it’s more fun than education and people of all age groups can equally enjoy it. It allows users to experience the world’s popular destinations, places and go on expeditions. Currently, the app has around 200 expeditions and the developing team is continuously adding more and more locations. Although the Expeditions app works best with Cardboard or VR gear (available on the Armor store) but you can also enjoy it via 360-degree mode.
6. Google Arts and Culture (Android & iOS)
Google Arts and Culture is quite similar to the Expeditions app mentioned above except it mainly focuses on museums, heritage sites, and historical places. The app is fully compatible with Google Cardboard and there are hundreds of different locations available within it.
