WordPress Gets Support for Embedded VR Media

Much of the web is driven by sites built on the WordPress CMS platform (26% of the web by some accounts). Now the platform has been updated to allow the support of VR 360º video without needing special plug-ins. Viewing a site on a phone browser or a webVR-enabled desktop browser, there is now a VR option, rendering the content correctly in full 3D mode. It is already functional with Cardboard, Gear, Daydream, Rift, and Vive, the company says, although testers are stilling working out some configurations.
