Google finally gets in reality, ends its VR 'Daydream'

Share

Over the last few years, Google's Daydream VR has quietly receded from the spotlight, with the platform being quietly discontinued for new devices late last year. Now, we're learning that Daydream App support will officially end with Android 11 - to nobody's real surprise.

Google also added that the Daydream VR app is no longer supported by Google and it also may not work properly on some devices running Android 11 or later.

The writing was already on the wall when Google dropped support for its fledgling Daydream VR platform on the Pixel 3a and Pixel 4 series.

Daydream VR software is no longer supported. However, Daydream experiences might soon come to the Play Store as standalone apps.

Along with the Daydream VR service, Google has announced the discontinuation of Daydream View headset. The headset will not be available for sale.

The View headset is not available for purchase anymore either, but if you have one, Google says that you can still use that to watch VR content with a compatible viewer and controller. The company even launched a new VR headset for Daydream.

Google decided it wasn't definitely worth the effort whereas Facebook continued to double down. However, much like every other major tech company, Google too got over it. It primarily focused on the affordability aspect by using the smartphone as the key hardware for all VR activities.
