The Google Cardboard VR viewer gave consumers a relatively affordable gateway into the VR experience. Now Google is upping the ante as it opens the Daydream View VR headset for pre-orders.

A little more commercial-looking, the Daydream headset is draped in breathable fabric and has three colors to choose from. It also comes with a handheld controller for a more immersive experience. Google recommends using it with Daydream-ready phones like the Pixel handsets to get the most out of the headgear.


Priced at $79, the Daydream View VR headset is available for pre-order in the US, UK and Germany. Units will start shipping by November.  Alfred Bayle
