Google has announced that Daydream VR, its virtual reality platform will now support the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones. This makes a total of 5 smartphones that currently support Google's VR platform.

The current roster of Daydream supported smartphones include the Google made Pixel smartphones, Moto Z, ZTE Axon 7, Huawei's Mate 9 Pro along with Samsung's Galaxy flagship smartphones.

The owners of both the Galaxy S8 smartphones now have an option of using either the company's own Oculus based Gear VR headset or Google's Daydream View to dive into the world of virtual reality.

Though Google is seeding Daydream support to Galaxy S8 smartphones globally, it will take some time to finish rolling out. So users should be on the lookout for a software update which will bring support for Daydream VR.

Google ha d already promised back in the day that they will have Daydream VR support for 11 phones by the end of this year and adding support for the Samsung flagship smartphones proves that it want's to make good on that promise.

The Daydream View headset by Google is available on Flipkart for Rs 6,499 while Samsung's own Gear VR 3 headset is listed for Rs 9,900 on its online store.
