Google DayDream VR News Update: Netflix, HBO, Lego Games, and More Comes!
The Google Daydream platform announced the availability of seven new apps, including Netflix, and the entry of Motorola Moto Z and Moto Z Force into the family. With access via Google Daydream VR, thousands of Netflix titles are now available for viewing and navigation via virtual reality, including classics and new movies and series that come every week to the Netflix catalog.
Google Daydream VR now supports Netflix-width-1500. On the side of games, including "Gunjack 2: End of Shift", a space shooter that allows us to annihilate half of the known universe with impunity. We also have the first Need for Speed created in a virtual environment, "Need For Speed No Limits VR".
There is "LEGO BrickHeadz Builder VR", where we can build characters and worlds with the famous blocks in Google Daydream VR. For terror fans, they will have "Layers of Fear: Solitude", while "Underworld Overlord" lets us control our subterranean henchmen against the hordes of heroes who try to annoy our peaceful life of evildoers.
In addition to these frankly tempting titles in Google Daydream VR, services not relevant to most of Europe countries were also added. It is notably from HBO and NextVR. However, the Daydream Viewer will be available at the Google Store in England, Canada, and the USA on the limited editions Crimson and Snow.
Today, seven titles are filling the library, putting Google closer to the 50 applications promised to Daydream by the end of the year. Two of them are video services: there's the NextVR, known for broadcasting live shows and sporting events in virtual reality, and HBO, which will allow HBO Now and Go subscribers to watch TV on a virtual big screen on Daydream. As we've heard before, Netflix also has an application on the way, and is now listed as coming later this month.
