Google recently cancelled an in-house virtual reality headset project to double down on mobile VR. Anonymous sources close to the search king told Recode that Google was working on a high-end standalone virtual reality headset similar to the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. The site also heard whispers that Google was working on a separate virtual reality operating system, but that project was scratched in favor of Android.
Google recently shut down an internal project to create a high-end standalone virtual reality headset akin to devices from Facebook’s Oculus and HTC, according to sources familiar with the plans.

The decision likely stems from Google’s effort to streamline its more ambitious projects, an ongoing slog at the company. In this instance, Google is shifting more resources behind mobile VR — tools for companies to build apps, games and services on smartphones that use the nascent media — rather than expensive hardware.
