Google has announced that as of November 10th, customers will be able to pick up a Daydream View VR headset, an accessory first teased at I/O 2016 and unveiled at the company’s October 4th event alongside the Pixel and Pixel XL. This headset grants users the ability to view and interact with Daydream content using a Daydream-compatible smartphone, with Google’s two Pixel phones being the first devices to support the technology. For reference, if you preordered a Pixel or Pixel XL, you’re entitled to a free Daydream View. Check your email for the code.
Last month, we announced Daydream View, a comfortable and easy-to-use virtual reality headset and controller powered by any Daydream-ready phone. It will be available November 10th on the Google Store and at retailers across five countries.
Those five countries (alongside their appropriate pricing) include:
United States: Verizon, Best Buy; $79 (USD)
Canada: Bell, Rogers, Telus, Best Buy; $99 (CAD)
United Kingdom: EE, Carphone Warehouse; £69 (GBP)
Germany: Deutsche Telekom; €69 (EUR)
Australia: Telstra, JB Hi-Fi; $119 (AUD)
At launch, Slate will be the only color option available, while those of you wanting the Snow or Crimson shades will have to wait a little while. Each Daydream View comes with a remote control to further interact with VR content in order to play games, watch movies, and consume media.
Speaking of games and movies, Google has also unveiled a full list of titles with Daydream compatibility that are launching for use with the View headset. You can view the full list below.
