Google Daydream View review: comfortable mobile VR headset with limited compatibility
Google’s big bet on the future of virtual reality, Daydream, is finally available to buy, but is the Daydream View headset actually worth getting?
Daydream is the new VR platform from Google. An evolution of what the company started with its Cardboard headset, it works on the same principle using a modern smartphone as both the screen and powerhouse.
Unlike Cardboard, Daydream has a set of rigorous standards that the smartphone must meet in order for it to be able to use the software and resulting headset and controller. Currently, only the Google Pixel smartphone is Daydream-ready, but more top-end smartphones are expected to be announced in the next year that pass muster and can be used with the system.
