To utilize Daydream and experience virtual reality, you'll need a Daydream View headset, which is available for Rs. 6,499 exclusively on Flipkart. ($79 in the U.S). Also to get access to VR contents like videos, games and apps, download the Google Daydream VR app from the Play Store.

The Galaxy S8 & Galaxy S8+ joins a handful of devices to support Daydream VR such as Pixel, Pixel XL, Moto Z, Moto Z Force, ZTE Axon 7, Huawei Mate 9 Pro, Porsche Design Mate 9 and Asus ZenFone AR.

Additionally Google has promised that by the end of the year a total of 11 Android smartphones will be Daydream ready. The upcoming LG V30, Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 are most likely to support Daydream.
