Google to announce its first VR Headset tomorrow with $79 price tag

The biggest search engine on Earth, Google is planning to enter the virtual-reality headset market this year. California-based Company is holding a hardware event tomorrow where the company is expected to introduce its first ever DayDream VR headset along with a number of offerings.

DayDream virtual-reality headset will be made by the Taiwanese smartphone maker, HTC, the same company that has been long-rumored to make Google’s anticipated phones, the Pixel and the Pixel XL, the pair that are also expected to make their debut on tomorrow’s event. Rumors say that the new pair, the Pixel and the Pixel XL will work perfectly with Google’s new VR headset.

DayDream virtual-reality headset was first introduced in May, and the new device was met with a virtual round of applause from all tech watchers. Basically, it is an extended version of Google’s Android operating system. Like Samsung’s VR headsets which work perfectly with Samsung’s select devices, Google’s counterparts pair flawlessly with DayDream-optimized phones, but the major difference is that DayDream headsets come with a handheld controller that works as a Wii remote along with the ability to track motion. The coolest part is that you can use DayDream controller for both navigation and VR gameplay.


Day-Dream VR headset is Google’s strategic plan to diversify its products in order to attract more customers. Google has been partnering with a number of phone manufacturers to make “Made with Google” devices including Huawei, LG, and HTC. Google’s Nexus phone is among the must-have phones in the market thanks to its cheap price tag, beautiful design and crazy specs. With the release of DayDream VR headsets, we will see an intense competition among VR headset manufacturers this year. From now on, there are a variety of VR headsets from different companies you can pick from. However, Google’s new headset has its own upper hand over its rivals thanks to its $79 price tag, while both Sony and Oculus ship their VR headsets starting at 399 USD.

Google has been rumored to launch Google Home, an always-listening virtual assistant that will take on Amazon Echo. Besides, there is also a 4K Google Chromecast Ultra that acts as a digital media player that has been rumored to be capable of streaming 4K resolution content to a HDMI-equipped display.

Google’s DayDream VR headset is expected to make a gigantic hit during this year’s holiday shopping season. The new VR headset will make its debut later this month. If you are planning to own one, make sure that you check out Google’s hardware event that is scheduled on 4 October 2016. We are waiting something special from the biggest search engine on Earth.

Google’s DayDream VR headset is a great VR device with cheap price tag. The device works perfectly with your DayDream-optimized phones and VR gameplays. Even though it has some drawbacks, it is really something that you don’t want to miss at all.
