Google has launched Chrome on the Google Daydream View and Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream headsets. As you’d expect, Chrome for VR comes with all the features that we’re used to, including voice search, incognito mode and saved bookmarks. These are also joined by several VR-only features too.
Describing the VR-only features, Gordon Brander, Chrome UX Engineer, said:
“All the features you love on Chrome, from voice search to incognito mode to saved bookmarks, are now accessible on your Daydream headset. But we’ve also added a few Daydream-specific features, like “cinema mode” which optimizes web video for the best viewing experience in VR. With Chrome now integrated into Daydream, you can start browsing on your phone, whether it is reading your favorite news article or watching a YouTube video, and easily switch to your headset.”
In order to use Chrome on your Daydream device, you’ll need to install the latest version of Chrome for Android – once you’ve done that, Chrome will be accessible from the home screen on the VR headset.
Let us know in the comments whether you’ve got a Daydream headset and whether you’ve tried out Chrome yet, how is it?
