Hey guys! Google has officially launched its Pixel & Pixel XL smartphones, Google Home, Google WiFi, Daydream View and Google Chromecast Ultra at their #MadeByGoogle event in San Francisco on October 2016.

Let’s chat about Google‘s first virtual reality headset “Daydream View“, which will work alongside its mobile VR platform. It is made of soft fabric and comes with a motion-sensing controller.

In simple way, Daydream View = VR headset + controller that allows us to explore new worlds, kick back in our personal VR cinema and play games that put us at the center of action.

If we talk about controller, it is fitted with sensors that respond to how you move, point, swing and aim. It has a small 220mAh battery that charges via a USB Type C port. When we finished our work, then it can be easily fitted into the headset. Thus, it won’t get lost easily.

The Google Daydream View will be available on November 2016 at Google store for $79.
