    Samsung Galaxy S8 duo is now receiving Daydream VR update

    When Samsung launched the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, one of the more glaring omissions was the lack of Daydream VR support. But at Google I/O, the company confirmed that the phone would receive an update "over the summer" that added Daydream support. Fortunately for Daydream VR fans, that time is now, since Google confirmed Daydream VR is rolling out to Samsung’s pair of flagship smartphones. The announcement came in the form of a Google+ post from the official Google VR account.

    This update now makes the Galaxy S8 one of the most attractive VR devices on the planet from a development perspective. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus in conjunction with the new Gear VR + its controller many called it the best mobile VR combination available. That’s still true and now with Daydream support, the S8 is even harder to beat. The Daydream headset and controller are currently on sale for $59 (normally $79) while Samsung’s latest Gear VR retails for $129. You don't need to be panicked if you don’t see the Daydream app on your device quite yet as the company said that the “update will take time to finish rolling out.”


    Unlike the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, Daydream View doesn't need to be hooked up to an expensive PC. Instead, users slip their smartphone into the visor and run games and apps on their phone's display and processors. On its most recent earnings call, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said that the company would have 11 different devices on the Daydream platform by the end of the year.
