The Google Daydream View was released back in 2017 and since then has been a popular choice for mobile phone based virtual reality (VR) experiences. For those who have not had the chance to pick up one for themselves then now is your lucky day as Verizon have the Google Daydream View on sale for what might be the lowest price see yet.
The current price – which was picked up by mashable – means that the head mounted-display is only $29.99 (USD) which makes it around 70% off from the standard retail price of $99.99. Considering this might very well be the cheapest the unit has ever been on sale, it marks one of the cheapest entry points for anyone looking to get started with immersive media entertainment.
The Google Daydream View was put on half price for a limited time back in June of this year, but that was a promotion to help shift some units. The Verizon discount looks more in line with being a stock clearance which could mean anything to be honest. Seeing as the unit only went on sale a year ago, who knows what could be in store for the Google Daydream View.
At the Google I/O conference this year there was a lack of any updates on the Daydream View side of things but Google made sure to show its still invested in the VR and augmented reality (AR) space. This includes announcing the Google Tour Creator to offer easy creation of 360-degree tours along with updates to ARCore. Thanks to this most Android devices are now able to handle AR experiences meaning the reach for developers and content creators became huge overnight.
For those looking to pick up the Google Daydream View from Verizon – which you can do here – it will be worth checking the list of compatible phones to ensure you have a device able to work with the headset. Devices such as the Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy S8 will work along with many others.
