As listed on Verizon’s website this morning, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are receiving updates, both getting support for Google’s Daydream VR platform and a few other changes.

To utilize the awesomeness that is Daydream, you’ll need a Daydream View headset, which is purchasable through the Google Store for $79. You can also find them on eBay, Best Buy, and Fry’s. Once you have your phone updated and a View headset, head over to Google Play to download the Daydream app, if the update doesn’t automatically include it.

In addition to the Daydream support, Verizon notes a new button for the navigation bar, which allows you to hide the bar at anytime. It’s a little dot button and pressing it will quickly hide the nav bar should you want it gone. A simple swipe will make it reappear. Enabling and disabling this button is done via the Navigation Bar Settings menu.

Be on the lookout for this update to start rolling out shortly if you haven’t seen it pop up already.
