Number of Google Daydream compatible Android Smartphones rises to 11 – Says Google CEO Sundar Pichai
Google CEO Sunder Pichai and new alphabet board member in his official statement said that by the end of the year 2017, 11 different Android smartphones will support Google Daydream VR platform. Daydream is an amazing platform that allows smartphones to work as standalone devices, and it will soon be reachable for millions of users. Currently, smartphones that support this feature include Huawei Mate 9 Pro, Motorola Moto Z, the Porsche Design Mate 9, the ZTE Axon 7, Asus ZenFone AR, Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. Virtual Reality is not turning into reality due to expensive hardware and its huge cost which is keeping mainstream audience away from this fantastic feature. However, with the recent announcement by Pichai one can expect VR turning into reality very soon.
With the advancement of technology, VR and AR will become a must have feature for smartphones in the upcoming years. A few years back, virtual reality seemed to be a marketing gimmick or a feature that was confined only up to Sci-Fi movies. In the past few years’ giant tech companies have worked rigorously toward the virtual platform to make this dream turned into a reality. Google Daydream and Samsung Gear VR were among the latest development in the field of Virtual Reality which changed everything. Google Daydream device which was launched last year basked praises for its light weight design and reasonable price.
In the recent times, VR has received quite praise for its capacity to produce the high-quality VR experiences for the users on their smartphones. To use this amazing feature, you are required to install a VR supportive software to your device and then you are all set to enjoy this fantastic feature. The Google Daydream feature has the same concept of Samsung Gear VR however, according to experts Google has an edge over Samsung Gear VR as it supports a large range of smartphones and it is comparatively much cheaper than Samsung Gear VR.
Till now, Pichai has not mentioned all the 11 models of smartphone devices that will support Daydream feature by the end of the year 2017. Everything, for now, is kept under wraps.
As the year is approaching its end, there are many companies that are planning to launch their new versions of VR’s to the market. Therefore soon Google will extend its support to more of Android smartphones that will work compatibly with Daydream.
