Google Daydream View launches in 5 countries for $79

Google's Daydream View VR headset has now launched in five countries in select retailers and on the Google Store.

It has launched in Australia, Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom and the US. The device is available for $79 or local equivalent.

Not for every phone

The device can only be used with phones that support Android Nougat 7.0. This is currently limited to Google's own Nexus and Pixel phones, though other phones will soon have access to the OS update.

The headset comes with a wireless controller to control it. There are also a limited number of apps and games already available for the hardware, including Mike Bithell Games' EarthShape and Resolution Games' Wonderglade.
