Google on Thursday rolled out its Expeditions app with a new solo mode for all users.

 “Using this mode, they can explore over 600 different tours on their own. All that users need to do is download the Expeditions app (available on both Android and iOS), drop their phone into Google cardboard and get ready for an adventure!” the company said in the statement.

The app was available for past two years however the usage was just restricted to teachers. The teachers used it as a tool to extend learning inside the classroom, helping students to gain exposure to new career paths and learn about various social impact initiatives happening around the globe.

The new update will allow the users to take these tours in both ways, as an explorer or a guide.

As an ‘Explorer’, users can experience the tour on their own, where they can view more detailed information on various points of interest within the experience.

The ‘Guide Mode’ lets teachers preview a tour before embarking with their students on a virtual journey.

Expeditions are also compatible with Daydream View VR headset-ready phones for more immersive and engaging experience.
