This site has been archived and remains strictly as a historical reference for developers who actively maintain apps built using the legacy Google VR SDK, which was last updated in 2019 and is no longer receiving updates.
  • All developers actively developing experiences for Google Cardboard should use the new open source Cardboard SDKs for iOS, Android NDK, and Unity XR Plugin. These new SDKs offer streamlined APIs, improved device compatibility, and built-in viewer profile QR code scanning.
  • The Daydream View VR headset is no longer available for purchase as of October 15, 2019. Existing apps on supported devices are unaffected for users who previously installed those applications. It is no longer possible to opt-in to Daydream distribution via Google Play.

Daydream Standalone

Daydream Standalone headsets feature WorldSense, which provides 6DoF tracking (sometimes referred to as "inside-out tracking"), without the need for cables, phone or a PC. Daydream Standalone headsets deliver an immersive, portable VR experience without the complicated setup.

Key features:

  • Increased processor and cooling performance, which means more powerful apps without thermal or other performance issues.
  • WorldSense provides reliable 6DoF inside-out tracking at sub-cm accuracy.
  • High quality, VR-optimized displays featuring greater resolution and higher FoV.

Lenovo Mirage Solo

The Lenovo Mirage Solo is the first Daydream Standalone headset. The Mirage Solo includes a 6DoF standalone headset and a Daydream controller.
