The shrinking user base has forced Google to shut down its virtual virtual reality (VR) platform, which would go offline by the end of June. The company tells users to download their data before shutting down the video call platform. Launched in 2015, Jump is a professional Google video solution from Google. This allows 3D 360-degree video production to scale with automatic video sewing using Cloud power.
In an email sent to users and announcements posted on the Jump FAQ page, the tech giant said the platform will stop receiving uploads for processing on June 26th.
"Those who want a copy of the data they uploaded to the cloud will download it all by June 27. Google will delete cloud grouping data and deactivate accounts on June 28," he reads email.
Google has seen the emergence of a number of good alternative solutions for creators.
"Since these new cameras, formats and editing tools have become available, we've seen the use of the Jump Assembler," the company said.
Jump was a big bet on Google's virtual reality video, and the company worked with GoPro and Yi to build dedicated VR cameras. Yi released $ 17,000 (roughly Rs. 12 lakhs) VR in 2017 with Google Camera.
Closing Jump VR is not the first departure of Google from VR. The company has previously pulled out a connector on a high-end cinematographic VR camera, developed in collaboration with Imax.
