Google Daydream View VR headset unveiled

Alongside the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, Google has launched the compatible Daydream View VR headset.


Google has announced the launch of the Daydream View VR headset which is part of the Daydream platform announced at the Google I/O 2016 conference. The headset is made out of soft micro fiber, making it soft and lightweight. The device runs on the Android Nougat version and is designed to fit over eyeglasses.

The Daydream View VR headset has an auto-alignment system to adjust the phone. It also comes with the Daydream controller which slides right inside the headset when not in use. Google has already partnered with Samsung, HTC, LG, Xiaomi, Huawei, ZTE, Asus, and Alcatel for readying smartphones with Daydream. In addition, the company will team up with over 50 partners for apps and games later this year.


The Daydream View VR headset along with the controller is priced at just $69 and is expected to be available starting from November. The headset is available in slate, snow and crimson colour options.
