This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The timestamp read-only property of the VRPose interface returns the current time stamp of the system — a monotonically increasing value representing the time since the current app was started.

This property is useful for determining if position data has been updated, and what order updates have occured in.

Important: This version of timestamp has been removed from the spec — instead, timestamps are returned when VRDisplay.getFrameData() is called — see VRFrameData.timestamp.


var myTimeStamp = VRPose.timestamp;


A DOMHighResTimeStamp representing the timestamp, in seconds.
