Step inside the story.

Guardian VR fuses rigorous journalism with innovative storytelling.

Whether it’s living in solitary confinement, struggling as an asylum seeker or seeing through a baby’s eyes, you can now experience all of these stories from a different point of view.

Just pop your smartphone into a Google Cardboard headset and you’ll be able to watch and interact as events unfold around you. Guardian VR is also compatible with Daydream-enabled devices.

Keep coming back for new content - we’ll be bringing you different pieces regularly.

For the best experience we recommend using a Samsung S6, S7, S8; Google Pixel, Nexus 5X, 6P; or One Plus 3T, running Android 7.0 and above.
