Galaxy S8 Devices Now Getting Daydream VR Support-The Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of the most outstanding phones of this year but does not have some features that were expected with it as the fingerprint sensor on the screen or the dual camera. Another improving aspect was virtual reality. Now, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is already compatible with Daydream’s virtual reality, a Google platform.
Google said a few months ago that up to eleven smartphones would be compatible with Daydream before the end of the year and start of 2018. Now, the newly released Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus has join others – Pixel,the Samsung Galaxy S8 is already compatible with the virtual reality of Daydream
Google has already announced Google Daydream VR support in both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 +. The international versions of the Samsung Galaxy S8 received the update in which they have automatically received the virtual reality services from Google to be able to install the content. Once it has been updated we can install all Daydream applications compatible with virtual reality like YouTube VR and we can also test our devices by playing online roulette.
Many new high-end devices are expected to arrive in the coming months to be compatible with Google Daydream like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which will be presented later this month. Google Daydream only works on devices with a version equal to or higher than Android 7.1 Nougat,so you can only work on updated or recently launched mobile.
There are some applications available for virtual reality with Daydream like, for example, some games known as Rabbit. Currently, there is not too much content compatible with Daydream but Google is working and adding new partners.
Google’s Daydream was launched in November 2016 and can be purchased for about $ 59 (usually around $ 79), which is priced well below other manufacturer’s headsets such as the Samsung Gear VR.
In the coming months, we’ll see which other phones will be compatible with Daydream’s virtual reality system and how Google is driving its service.
