Google Launches Daydream View In India

The device is available on Flipkart for Rs 6,499 starting today.


Google has finally launched the much expected Daydream View headset and controller in India, which will be available exclusively on Flipkart for Rs 6,499 starting from today.

Speaking on the launch, Clay Bavor, Vice President of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality at Google said, “Daydream View promises users a mesmerising experience. Swim with a pod of dolphins, stand at the edge of a volcano and even visit Pluto with Daydream View. Users can teleport from virtually anywhere to pretty much everywhere. Our aim is to make the VR experience mobile so that customers can easily carry it anywhere with them. We at Google are also working with developers, smartphone companies, and content creators to make VR accessible to all.”

According to a recent press release, Daydream View delivers simple, high-quality VR, and which users can always users to get the best seat in the house and experience sports, live events and more in full 360 degree panoramic view. Also, the device allows Indian users to watch top shows and movies on their own virtual big screen.

Adding further, it is worth noting that Google’s Daydream View is compatible with Daydream-ready phones  such as Google Pixel and Pixel XL. Also, you can experience Daydream on the Moto Z and soon on Galaxy S8 and S8+ as well. Daydream-ready phones are built with high-resolution displays, powerful mobile processors and high-fidelity sensors—all tuned to support great VR experiences.

A big part of what makes Daydream View special is the controller. This small yet powerful controller lets users interact with the virtual world the same way they interact with the real world around them. Daydream View is said to be packed with sensors that respond precisely to a user’s movement and gestures — swing it like a cricket bat or wave it like a magic wand. When you’re done using it, slide it into a specially-created area within the headset and never worry about losing it in a bag or between couch cushions.

Apps and games on Daydream include NYT VR, Guardian VR, The Turning Forest, Labster: World of Science, Netflix VR, Google Play Movies, Within, Fantastic Beasts, The Arcslinger, Wonderglade, Mekorama VR, Gunjack 2: End of Shift, Need for Speed™ No Limits VR, LEGO® BrickHeadz Builder VR and dozens more.
