So, till now the Daydream VR support is confirmed on nine smartphones while the upcoming refresh of the Pixel line-up will include two more Daydream compatible phones to reach the number 11.

According to The Verge, Daydream VR will use a compatible Google headset in tandem with one of the supported smartphones to deliver the 360 degree experience to the user. The Daydream VR update is currently being rolled out to T-Mobile and Verizon users.

As Android Police reports, the feature is not yet ready for use as it is a server side switch rather than a system update. According to one Reddit user, the Daydream feature can be enabled by clearing Google VR services app's data.
