Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus gain Google Daydream support this summer

New, 7 comments

It’s been a year since Google announced its Daydream VR program, and we’ve been wondering whether other companies’ flagship devices would support Google’s platform. Today at Google I/O, the company confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 Plus, and LG’s next flagship device will support Daydream.

Google says support for the S8 will roll out as a software update over the air, slated for this summer. Google’s Vice President of Virtual Reality says this is great momentum for Daydream on its first six months and he is delighted to have Samsung’s support despite the company running its own Gear VR platform.
