It has been a couple of days since Google unveiled its first Daydream virtual reality headset called the Daydream View. The new headset is a bit different from some of its rivals that are already available. The biggest difference is that Google wanted it to feel more like an article of clothing and not a clunky piece of technology. It was able to achieve that by making the headset out of fabric instead of hard plastic. Google has now provided the list of VR titles which will arrive after the headset is released next month.

The company has updated its Daydream View page to reveal 30 titles which are in development and will eventually be released after the headset starts shipping to customers. It talked about some of them during its announcement a couple of days ago. You can check out the entire list on Google’s Daydream View blog.

You won’t be able to use just about any Android smartphone with this handset. It will only work with those that are compatible with Google’s Daydream VR platform. Currently, the only two phones that work with this handset are the Pixel and Pixel XL made by Google.

Google is giving out Daydream View headsets as a pre-order incentive to Pixel customers. It hasn’t provided a confirmed release date as yet for the headset but did say during the announcement that it costs $79 and will be released in November.
