Google’s Daydream VR Platform is Picking Up 11 Phones This Year

Google CEO and recently-added Alphabet board member Sundar Pichia has announced there will be eleven Daydream VR-compatible smartphones on the market by the end of this year. Pichai said so during an earnings call, with a note taken by The Verge regarding the statistic.

Right now, the Pixel and Pixel XL, Moto Z, ZTE Axon 7, Asus ZenFone AR, and Huawei’s Mate 9 Pro all support the VR standard, while Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8+ are also gaining the new feature via software updates. We also expect the upcoming Z2, LG V30, Galaxy Note 8, and next-gen Pixels to also support the technology, so any way you count them, Google should have at least eleven Daydream-ready phones on the market by December 31, 2017. And thank God, because we’ve been waiting quite some time to see the platform grow beyond a limited amount of smartphones.

As always, you can check out Google’s website to view all the Daydream-compatible phones out right now.
