Last week, Samsung took the competition in the smartphone market to another level as the company officially revealed the new Galaxy flagships, S8 and S8+. Although the smartphones are definitely more powerful than its predecessors and likely to include more features in the coming weeks, users of Google’s Daydream VR solution might need to wait a bit longer as the smartphones won’t immediately support the devices.
According to recent reports, Daydream is not officially installed on two flagship smartphones since there’s a definite lack of compatible versions. However, if you enable root access to the device, you will have ability to change system permission files and be able to use Google’s VR platform on your new Galaxy phone.
Given than Samsung can’t provide official support for the device for its agreement with Oculus for the Gear VR, Google and Samsung might need to reach an agreement to ensure the viability of the technology for the S8 and S8+ users. However, there’s no definite timeline when you can get the option to use Daydream with Samsung’s devices and up until then you will have to enable root access to get both devices work together.
