As much fun as it is to play VR, sometimes watching people’s reactions is just as priceless. With headsets like the Playstation VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive you can not only watch the player, but you can watch the actual game as well via a monitor or TV. What about mobile VR though? No go right… well it’s possible now, thanks to Google.
At Google I/O’s VR session today, the company revealed that the Daydream 2.0 software, likely to arrive this fall with Android O, brings several interesting improvements, including support for Google Cast.
For the uninitiated Google Cast technology allows you to send the action going on in your Daydream headset over to a Chromecast or other Google Cast-capable device like Android TV set top boxes, select Televisions, and so on. Not only is this a great way to make VR a bit more social, it also could be useful for those of us that want to create video reviews of Google Daydream games (hint: sites like us).
