Along with that, it’s also initiated 1 program – how to advertise within Virtual Reality (VR). The experiment called ‘Advr’, involves a cube-like ad format which allows video ads to run in a 3D/VR environment.

Area 120 was launched at Google in March, 2016, as a way to retain entrepreneurial-minded talent at the company, as well as give teams the ability to test new ideas that could eventually become Google products.
