It's like I'm back in theatre. The immersion is awesome and I can't get over how genuine the scale of the movie feels. My only real issue is the depth or distance from the screen. I have to turn my head slightly left or right to see things clearly that are happening on the sides or edges of the screen. If it's possible, my recommendation would be to simply pull back the closeness of the screen to where it falls completely in your front view as opposed to the periphery. YouTube VR has a function where scrolling up and down on DayDream Remote adjusts the distance of the screen.
Daydream works. Hulu works. YouTube works. Get with it. I see a screen that says start my free trial, but there is absolutely no way to select it or sign in. The dang controller is sitting next to me on the couch. Is it a quadriplegic simulation of me sitting on a couch at a friend's house where they forgot to set up Netflix? If so, GREAT JOB!
I have thouroughly been enjoying watching movies on the Netflix VR app on my Google DayDream, where I would usually on a laptop. The VR makes it look like I am watching movies on a screen much larger, the screen is optimised at a comfortable view fitting exactly in my peripherals. I have been using earphones while watching movies for a surround sound effect. This is much cheaper than buying a movie ticket, or buying an expensive TV screen to size!
Netflix, Netflix, Netflix, it's such a nice app and it could be amazing but there are a few things that maybe you should look at. Firstly the whole hidden menu, come on I shouldn't have to read other reviews to see how to use the app to its full potential. When viewing there should be an option to make the area around the screen black in both layouts, I don't need distractions.
I can't even get it to open. The initial screen comes up but there's no way to push the sign in button. Maybe it would be a good idea to include a walk through tutorial or actual make it where it will launch correctly? I'm using a Google Pixel XL.
Firstly, an onboarding flow would be nice. Secondly, how about state it only works on the daydream headset. Thirdly how about log you in via smart Lock. I've got no way of advancing passed the login web view and no way of "clicking" on the poorly placed ceiling menu on my powis viewer... Only guessing you need daydream headset
