New Features Added to Tilt Brush in Latest Update

    One title so intrinsically linked to the HTC Vive head-mounted display (HMD) is Tilt Brush. The Google developed painting app has likely been shown at every event the headset was showcased at prior to launch, and came bundled for free with the device for those that pre-ordered. Today sees the launch of a brand new update adding new features and polish.

    The two main features added to Tilt Brush v1.4 is a teleport tool and the ability view YouTube Live chat while streaming. The teleport tool can be found on numerous rival design apps like ScupltrVR and Modbox, giving the ability to properly move around your design and view it from different angles. Previously on Tilt Brush you could only move where the Room Scale positional-tracking system would allow in the area the player had setup.

    The full version notes can be seen below, and VRFocus will continue to report on any further updates to the title.
