Google’s Daydream View VR Headset Arriving Next Week

November 3, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Daydream View, the in-house headset from Google that’s built on the Daydream virtual reality standard for Android, will have its first outing soon. The first hardware standard that comes as a part of the Daydream standards has now been confirmed for a release on November 10.

Daydream View headset will be initially made available only on five countries; United States, Canada, Germany, UK and Australia. The headset will be available on retailer sites as well as Google Store.

Priced at $79, the Daydream View headset is a different entity as compared with the previous virtual reality headsets made available for Android. Unlike Google Cardboard headset, the Daydream View will be compatible only on those Android devices that arrive with in-built Daydream VR support.


That said, it’s worth reminding you that the Daydream VR support is not available with all Nougat-running devices. ZTE Axon 7 was the first device that arrived with in-built compatibility for Daydream VR. Google has earlier tested the beta version of Daydream-ready Android during the previous month.

As with the new headset, Google has made some minor overhauls to the design front along with the major revamps that comprise the Daydream hardware upgrade. Instead of the cardboard-outfit, the Daydream View headset arrives with a cloth finish, which Google says has been implemented to make the device more comfortable and appealing.

The headset will also be accompanied by a motion-enabled headset that comes with wrist-strap, and a bunch of Daydream ready apps like Hulu, Google Play Movies, and many more including games. Daydream View will be arriving in three color variants; Slate (grey), Crimson (red) and Snow (white).
