Daydream 2.0 Will Introduce Casting, Screen Recording

Google’s Daydream VR platform is getting a major update this year to v2.0. It’s called Euphrates and Google says to expect a bunch of new features, like Casting of your VR session to a nearby TV. 

In the revamped menu in Daydream 2.0, you’ll now see clearer access to notifications as they roll in, along with controls for things like volume, camera, and settings. But this is also where that new Cast button will live, allowing you to share your VR sessions with others in the room to a TV or screen.

Along with new Cast controls, Daydream 2.0 is getting screen recording and the ability to watch YouTube VR videos simultaneously with other people.

On a related note, Google is working on a Chrome VR browser for Android that will arrive this summer. That certainly should make VR experiences much more accessible, while also giving you access to the open internet, virtually.

  • Talk about an overheating phone. Running VR and casting your screen. RIP.

  • sinfoman

    Jeez Louise! It already requires a pretty decent processor/RAM to power it; how much more juice will it take to cast it as well. 2015 phones (I suspect) need not apply…

    • Cory S

      Well…there aren’t any 2015 daydream phones…so..

      • sinfoman

        You are correct. I was thinking of Project Tango. Mea culpa.

    But is it still hot as the sun while using it? At least for the Pixel.

    • OligarchyAmbulance

      Does that somehow effect you? Because my Pixel has never gotten so hot in Daydream that it actually impacted performance, or my use of it.

      • RazorSky

        I got a daydream when I bought my pixel in November. I don’t think that it got hot enough to slow down, but it got hot enough where i was concerned for the phone. It wasn’t comfortable to hold after using the daydream. So yea I guess it did effect me.

        • OligarchyAmbulance

          The phone will shut off before it gets hot enough to do anything detrimental.

          • WiscoNative

            The phone is **supposed to** shut down before it gets hot enough to do anything detrimental. Still concerning when it gets uncomfortably warm to hold.

        The battery, for one, is what I am concerned about while using it. I already went through the 6P shutdown-battery-problem fiasco (they replaced the battery, after saying it was software related), I definitely don’t want my Pixel to suffer the same fate.
