Android 11 puts an end to yet another Google service

Android 11 puts an end to yet another Google service

It is now reported that the Daydream VR software is no longer supported by Google and the Daydream VR app will not work correctly on devices with Android 11 and newer OS versions. The company launched the Daydream virtual reality platform as a part of its Android OS.

It was first announced during the 2016 Google I/O conference. The company will no longer update the software and Daydream may not even work on Android 11. In mid-2019, Google also removed the Google Play Movies & TV app from its Daydream VR platform. Google's Android-specific VR platform, Daydream, is shutting down. Now, four years later, Google has finally made a decision to flip the kill switch on the Daydream VR platform. "So while we are no longer selling Daydream View or supporting Daydream on Pixel 4, the Daydream app and store will remain available for existing users". Moreover, its Daydream View headset is no longer on sale.

The View headset is not available for purchase anymore either, but if you have one, Google says that you can still use that to watch VR content with a compatible viewer and controller. With VR still looking for its real-world use case outside of gaming, it's understandable Google has paused their efforts. Instead of pushing VR, Google has already shifted its focus to AR (augmented reality). However, much like every other major tech company, Google too got over it.

At the time, Google explained that there are some clear limitations with smartphone VR.
