They still have a long way to go to catch up with Samsung. I've tried both VR and Samsung's is way better. They have tons of apps for it and Daydream is limited. The one on Samsung has a cinema app that it is like being in an actual movie theatre and you can watch what ever video you want off your phone. This, you can only view what the apps restrict you too. Like Netflix and their internal viewing experience. It's good, but the apps that daydream lets you use isn't there yet. The Samsung app lets you use any VR app on the Android market.
The Google Daydream could be better! It is not seamless and I would wish it could readily integrate other daydream apps download from the Google Play Store. That is, when you download apps for use with Google Daydream, those apps should be able to be seen in the menu when you power up Daydream View and are using the Google Daydream app. After enjoying the Google Daydream app one should be able to load other daydream apps that have been downloaded on the phone without having to go out of daydream and then restart the different app. I believe there is a menu within the Daydream app when viewing but this menu does not have the other daydream apps that may have been downloaded to the phone. One should be able to get to those apps without having to log out and then start a different daydream app. Just a thought.
Quit telling people to stop complaining about heat. It's a bad problem. It can be dangerous it or can be burning up my processor. It's abnormal and not worth using the daydream until fixed. After latest update my phone made through 30 minutes until the app shut down due to heat. Not worth destroying your phone.
If you value your device don't use this, they will get hotter then hell and potentially permanently damage your battery. I try on the z Force, Huawei 9 and pixel all getting unbearably hot within an hour of use....
This is the launcher for all Daydream apps. It's lacking some functionality, but overall it's good. I wish I could uninstall apps from this launcher, view screenshots and videos in its Play Store module, and I wish I could recenter the tracking to allow me to lay down and look up.
Great but limited content. No overheating issues with my Pixel. No option to unlock or add vertical offset, so you can't do something like recline and watch a movie comfortably. No Cardboard compatibility mode, so many VR apps in Play don't work.
• Fixed a few controller connectivity and low battery issues.
• Improved the Recents app row in Daydream Home so your newly installed apps will appear right there alongside recently opened ones.
• Fixed some issues with Do Not Disturb mode, so you can game on without interruption.
