Google brings its immersive Spotlight Stories to the iPhone and iPad

Google Spotlight Stories, an app that showcases live-action and animated short films made in collaboration between engineers and filmmakers, is now available for iPhone and iPad. The stories presented in the app use both 2D and 3D animations, 360-degree video, and more to provide an immersive experience.

Using these technologies, stories presented in the app can be viewed from multiple angles, letting you look anywhere, track individual characters, and watch it over again for a slightly different experience each time. In order to to open a story, you'll need to download it to your device. View downloaded items in the My Stories tab to get started.

It's also worth noting that this isn't the first experimental, video-related project that Google has release for iOS. The company has previously released a version of its Cardboard VR experience for iPhone.

Google Spotlight Stories can be downloaded from the App Store for both iPhone and iPad right now.
