This isn’t the first time Google has introduced support for Facebook’s VR platform — the internet giant rolled out a version of its futuristic VR paint app Tilt Brush for Oculus a couple of months ago.
But arguably more important than its arrival on Oculus, Google Earth VR now also lets you manually search for places through the app.

Until now, users could navigate by flying over landscapes and conurbations, but they couldn’t actually search for a place using keywords, as you can on Google Maps or Google Earth.
Google said that it has also added 27 new locations, including South Africa’s Table Mountain and Argentina’s Perito Moreno Glacier.
