Since Monday (30), users using the Daydream platform can use Chrome natively. The app works in much the same way as the desktop version, with the addition of a mode that optimizes videos for the VR experience.


Daydream is Google’s solution to deliver content focused on virtual reality for smartphones that are compatible with the feature, plus some models of glasses that come with the hardware and display – such as Lenovo Mirage Solo  and up to a Moto Snap with this feature – which has not yet been released. By then, anyone in the VR vision needed to use a trial version of Chrome from Android, limiting the use of the program in a number of ways.

Starting this week, the browser will be delivered in a complete, stable and made to work on sites that use the WebVR standard. This means that web content for virtual reality glasses will run natively, without any emulator or gambiarra of the software.

Alongside Chrome, there are already versions of famous Daydream apps such as YouTube , Netflix , Google Play Movies & Photos, HBO GO and even a version of the Discovery Channel app that has been completely ported to the glasses experience.

What’s new is available as an update to the Chrome app in the Android Play Store and even comes with the anonymous flap, perfect for personal browsing on the internet and with the guarantee that no one will see what your eyes can see.
