Google’s Daydream platform has a lot of potential. It will be first experienced on the Google Pixel and Pixel XL as Daydream-ready devices but we can expect more OEMs will adopt the idea and add support for virtual reality. This Daydream will soon be ready on the ZTE Axon 7 as announced recently but looks like more flagship devices want to follow like the Galaxy S7 edge. We’re not sure about this because the smartphone only runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow but we all know that the Android Nougat is already in the works.
The Daydream isn’t really exclusive to Pixel. It’s Android alright and that fact alone tells us it can be modified (unfortunately). Originally, the Galaxy S7 edge isn’t ready for Daydream but it sure supports virtual reality. It works with the Gear VR but Daydream is different. It’s new from the tech giant so we’re expecting more companies will look into the platform and run on their products and integrate with many services.
Virtual reality has always been around but it’s only now that it’s becoming more accessible to the public. Google knows that the mobile community is interested in virtual reality, as well as, augmented reality so it’s making the Daydream experience possible.
With Android Nougat on its way to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, the two premium flagship phones now considered the top alternatives to Note 7, will be able to run Daydream. We just don’t know when and how exactly since the platform is still new. More devs should be familiarizing the Daydream platform if they want their apps to be more popular and widely used.
