Google has a new version of its Cardboard VR app, which users can now download from the App Store or the Google Play Store.

The updated app comes with a brand new demo feature that will take users on a breathtaking Arctic Journey, wherein they can encounter some animals while taking a glimpse of some sceneries.

"Get a taste of what's possible in VR with the brand new Arctic Journey demo: fly alongside Arctic terns, plant a field of flowers, relax under a sky full of stars and more," states the app's description in Google Play Store.

Apart from the Arctic Journey demo, the latest version of the app also comes with other notable features that include Earth, Tour Guide, My Videos, Exhibit and Photo Sphere.

Earth allows users to see various locations on Google Earth and promises to fulfill wherever one fancies to go.

If the user desires to go to an unknown place, but hesitates because of the language barrier or wants to learn a thing or two from the experience, the app's Tour Guide feature will keep them covered with some help from a local guide.

Users who have a knack on cultural artifacts can take advantage of the app's Exhibit feature, which allows them to take a closer look at artifacts from whatever angle they desire. Photo buffs will also enjoy looking around their captured photo spheres. Lastly, the app's My Videos feature simply allows users to watch videos on a huge screen.

Arctic Journey begins with a cute Arctic fox and proceeds with a number of varying scenes that feature themes such as playing, flight, creating, learning and relaxation. The scenes are really simple and may contain only one or two objects that can be clicked.

At the end of the journey, users are taken to a menu where they can choose what they want to do next from a number of options. They can go back to one of the previous scenes in an instant or they can also opt to start from the very beginning.

Google wants to make sure that users get the best viewing experience possible when they use the app.

"Do not use this app while driving, walking; or otherwise by being distracted or disoriented from real world situations that prevent you from obeying traffic or safety laws," warns Google.
