It seems that Google’s Daydream View VR headset is now officially on sale in Australia, with listings going live on Google’s Store overnight, and we’ve confirmed that the headsets are now on sale in JB HiFi stores as well.
Daydream View is supposedly available in Telstra Stores as well, however we’ve been unable to confirm this at the time of writing.
If you’re keen on getting a Daydream View, you can grab them online or in store now for $119, which includes the headset and remote controller. You just need to supply the compatible phone. At this stage, we know that both Pixel phones will work just fine in Daydream View, though other handsets may not be supported just yet — we’ve tried Daydream on a Galaxy S7 Edge with a purchased headset, and the app won’t install.
It is early days, though, and we expect that this compatibility will be extended in coming days and weeks as other phones become certified for use in Daydream.
Will you be buying a Daydream View headset? Let us know in the comments if you’ve got one and where from.
