Google is shutting down the Poly platform for virtual reality content

Google announced today, Thursday, that it plans to end its Poly 3D (Poly) authoring platform within the next year.

Google has sent an email to Poly platform users informing them of their intention to permanently close the platform within the next year.

The US tech giant said in an email: The Poly platform will be closed on June 30, 2021. As of April 30, users will not be able to upload 3D models to the website.

Poly was introduced as a tool for creating 3D objects optimized for virtual reality technology. Virtual reality tools make it easy for users to create objects with a small number of curved surfaces.

Unlike virtual reality tools that focus on sculpting and artwork (such as Google's Tilt Brush tool and Facebook, now linked to Medium), the platform is designed to create and display items in three dimensions, then in virtual reality games the ease of use of these objects. Of Adobe Corporation.

It should be noted that Poly is not the first virtual reality and augmented reality product that Google has discontinued as it has already completed the Daydream mobile virtual reality platform.

The initial boom in the virtual reality and augmented reality industries has prompted many up and coming object-oriented 3D companies to rely on building a library that can provide employees in the industry with the necessary 3D objects.

According to reports, users who upload 3D objects to the Poly platform will be able to upload their data and models before the platform is permanently closed.

In November last year, Google stopped supporting the Expeditions virtual reality app, so the app will be removed from the iOS and Android app stores on June 30, 2021. The app offers a virtual reality course.
