Those with a Google Pixel phone, get ready to dive into Google's Daydream vision.
For $79, users will get the headset and a controller for interacting with virtual reality apps and games. Similar to Samsung's Gear VR platform, Daydream leverages a compatible smartphone to power and provide the screen of the VR experience.
In addition to selling Daydream View in the Google Store, various retail outlets will sell Daydream View in a total of five countries. According to Google, those stores and countries are:
- US: Verizon, Best Buy - $79 (USD)

Currently, only Google's Pixel phones are Daydream-ready. ZTE's Axon 7 is compatible, however it will need a software update before it can work with Daydream.
