Despite only recently being released and being compatible with a very limited phone models, Google’s Daydream VR headset is steadily increasing its library of content. Google has been hard at work to get a set of new games and apps released for their VR platform.
Regarding apps, Daydream VR has recently added the previous Gear VR exclusive Netflix VR. The platform is also the first one to get the HBO Go VR app on the market. Both apps consist of transporting the user in a digital cinema where they can watch their favorite content on those services. However, the two companies may soon produce native video content for virtual reality.
Another interesting app recently added to Daydream VR library is NextVR. The app focuses on providing VR content for sports and music events. The YouTube VR app is exclusively available on Daydream VR. Users have access to the site’s massive library of both standard videos as 360 and 360 3D VR videos. Furthermore, Daydream users now have access to a high number of other video platforms such as Hulu VR, Within, Google Play Movies & TV, Jaunt VR, and more.
Amazon Video is among the last major video platforms not to be available on any of the VR platforms. It is very likely that both Google and Samsung are competing to have Amazon’s platform as a timed exclusive on their VR headset.
Besides getting new video content, Daydream VR gaming enthusiasts will be able to enjoy a new set of games on the platform. The most notable addition is the Lego BrickHeadz Builder VR which is completely free without any type of in-app purchases for other features. Basically, it consists of the Lego experience but in VR, which due to clunky controllers can be slightly frustrating.
Other new games which users will have to buy in order to play them are Gunjack 2: End of Shift, a turret shooter from the EVE universe. Wands is a multiplayer wand dueling game; Underworld Overlord is a tower defense game. The last notable game on Daydream VR is Layers of Fear: Solitude, a horror game which takes place in a mansion.
