Amidst rumours, hints and teasers of Google’s virtual reality (VR) ambitions, there has yet to be a clear confirmation on any plans or forward movement. That is until Google introduced a placeholder for Android VR in the Google Play Developer Console.


Parked alongside the Android Wear, Android TV, and Android Auto icons, this new aspect to the Google Play ecosystem is now locked in as it can be found on the Pricing and Distribution section within the developer control centre.

While the placeholder could translate to a number of possibilities, for now there is no other hints coming from Google.

One can expect to hear more from the upcoming Google I/O so do expect plenty of stuff on VR to appear during that major event.
