When Samsung released Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus earlier last month, it didn’t ship with support for Daydream and users were forced to use the Gear VR. However, if you are a fan of Google’s Daydream or want to use another product by Google, then you will be glad to know that Samsung is bringing support for Google Daydream soon.
Earlier on Wednesday, Samsung announced that both Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will receive a software update in summer that will include support for the popular accessory. As Google’s Daydream VR requires a smartphone powerful enough to act as a display and computer power behind VR experience, there hasn’t been a large number of Daydream ready smartphones. When the company launched the product way back in November, only Pixel smartphones supported the device.
Recently though, Google announced that LG’s upcoming flagship smartphone will be VR ready although we don’t know for sure when LG’s flagship smartphones will become available. You can buy the $80 Daydream VR headset to use the platform with Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.
