Google Daydream: VR according to Mountain View

by | Oct 25, 2016

Games and a dedicated application? Daydream is just not that. The new VR mobile platform will be released in November 2016 and it will include a specially designed hardware system to fully appreciate the virtual reality content.

Google Daydream, which should cost about $ 79, will also allow you to view content in virtual reality through its Chrome browser, thanks to a new software version.

In 2014 Google launched Cardboard, cardboard glasses that have tried to bring virtual reality to the general public. In 2016 Google, with Daydream, makes a clear step forward, adding a viewer to the platform to stick to the smartphone and creating touchpad controller for a better navigation.

As expected Daydream’s contents and services will only be compatible with Android devices, updated with the latest generation system requirements. A viable alternative to Oculus Rift and HTC Lives? We’ll see.

Meanwhile great news are planned for YouTube: a new version of the platform compatible with VR will be released soon and many YouTubers and popular web star will be involved to develop quality content. What do you think? Share your opinion with BLAST community!
