Google launched the Pixel and Pixel XL alongside the Daydream VR platform. To mark the launch of this platform, the search engine giant also came in with a Daydream View VR headset.
This futuristic Daydream View VR headset comes in to take the place of the inaugural Google Cardboard, which was the simplest approach to VR one could ever imagine. Now, unlike several other VR headsets that are already available in the market, the Daydream View headset has an affordable price tag of just $79.
When you visit the official Made By Google website, you should be able to access a link for making a pre-order for the Daydream View VR headset. However, there are some limitations with respect to availability. As for now, only those in the U.S., German, and the UK can access the device through pre-orders, however, the Daydream View should start shipping in November.
Google always strives to make its hardware and software products as simple and easy to use as possible. The Daydream View VR headset is no different. The headset comes in a light-weight package and it will work on just Google Pixel phones, but also all other Daydream-ready phones. The View VR headset can be purchased in three different colors of Slate, Snow, and Crimson.
The Google Daydream View VR headset is accompanied by a controller for navigating the interface as well as playing VR games.
Another device that was also announced at the Google Pixel event is the 4-ready Chromecast Ultra. Like the Daydream View VR headset, this streaming device is also priced affordably at just $69, but still, it is almost twice the price of its predecessor. Reason being? The new Chromecast Ultra can play and stream 4K content as well as support HDR and Dolby Vision. This will also start shipping as from November.
The Google Pixel and Pixel XL, on the other hand, are already available for purchase in the U.S. and the UK, among other regions.
