The feature need to manually enabled from Chrome flags
Google Chrome now supports the VR content on websites for Oculus Rifts headset. The update comes in the Chrome 66 version that Google pushed a couple of days back. However, the change was hidden beneath the codes until one Reddit user spotted it and shared over the internet. Now, the Chrome browser can give you web-based VR experience using the Oculus Rift.
Facebook’s virtual reality headset got the Chrome support after Google released the 66.0.3359.117 version of the web browser. In order to see the’ Oculus Rift support’ listing, you need to load up the chrome flags by typing “ chrome://flags” in the URL bar. The headset support setting is manual, so it won't be enabled by default, you need to turn it on or off. Once you enabled the support, Google Chrome will detect the VR headset to deliver you the VR content from the web.
However, this is not the first time Google added support for VR on Chrome, with its Chrome 61 the company added the Daydream support in September. With this integration the browser allows the users to view the websites in virtual reality and follow links between the different pages. Google Chrome also automatically switches to 3D content from 2D if the websites support the WebVR.
