NextVR: Android VR application was removed from the Google Play Store after Apple’s acquisition | Instant News

Apple recently revealed that it has acquired the virtual reality company NextVR. Within hours of the announcement, the NextVR Android application was pulled from the Google Play Store.

Mark Gurman from Bloomberg showed this change through a tweet. He tweeted that a direct link from the NextVR application on the Google Play Store displays an error message saying that the application was not found. We also tried searching for an application on the Google Play Store and it couldn’t be found.

Apple confirmed the acquisition of NextVR to Bloomberg. The company said that with this acquisition Apple aims to change the way its users watch sports and entertainment. This acquisition is said to be worth around $ 100 million. The acquisition has not yet been closed but the company has begun notifying employees who must move from San Diego to the Cupertino area.

NextVR is known for broadcasting sports and entertainment events as 360-degree content for various VR headsets including Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, and others. The company has partnerships with NBA, Fox Sports and others.

This is not the first time something like this has happened. Last month Apple also acquired the Dark Sky weather application and as part of the acquisition, the company announced that it would turn off the Android and WearOS versions of the application.

Android and WearOS users will not be able to use the Dark Sky application from July 1. This application will be completely removed from the Android platform. On the other hand, iOS users will be able to use the application in the same way.
