Google introduced its Daydream virtual reality platform last year. The platform was released just a few months ago after the company released its Daydream VR-compatible Pixel smartphones. It also released its very own Daydream View virtual reality headset that costs $79. The Daydream View VR headset has now received its very first price cut for a limited time.
If you’re interested in picking one up, you can buy the Google Daydream View virtual reality headset from the Google Store for $49. That’s a $30 discount on a headset that normally costs $79. This is the first proper price cut that we’ve seen from Google for this device.
Even though you will save $30 on the head, you will need a Daydream-compatible smartphone to actually use the headset with, and there are only a handful of those available right now including but not limited to the Pixel and Pixel XL as well as the Moto Z series from Motorola. Handsets like the Asus ZenFone AR, ZTE Axon 7, and Huawei Mate 9 Pro will become compatible with Daydream later this year.
Google is offering this discount on all three colors that the Daydream View is available in. This price cut is only for a limited time so you have to buy your unit before February 25th if you want to save $30. It may very well run out of units before then.
