Google’s new Daydream virtual reality (VR) platform launched recently together with the brand spanking new Google Pixel phones. It makes sense for them to continue to add to the content available via the Daydream mobile VR portal to make sure that those who bought the Daydream View VR headsets will not run out of content to explore. Check out these new apps coming to Daydream soon.
In terms of entertainment and leisure apps, Daydream users will now be getting HBO NOW, HBO GO, and Netflix on their VR portals. If you want to watch that next episode of Westworld on your VR headset, then it is possible now. Also, the Next VR app features sports events and concerts live, or even highlights that you can re-watch.
There are quite a bit of new games coming to Daydream – LEGO BrickHeadz Builder VR, Gunjack 2: End of Shift, Layers of Fear: Solitude, Wands, and Underworld Overlord. We specifically want to mention Need for Speed No Limits VR, which is the first NFS title rendered fully in VR. If you wondered what street racing would be like in VR, then wonder no more.
Google has announced that the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force have been added to the list of Daydream-enabled smartphones. We expect that as new phones drop for the end-of-year spree and the new flagships in Q1, newer devices would be added to this list.
