As virtual reality expands as a preferred viewing mode on many tech devices, DayDream is a platform bringing augmented reality to smartphones. The platform is currently only available to Android users, and it will allow consumers to view content on their cellular devices through a viewing experience called 'VR Mode.'

DayDream is a developed extension that turns virtual reality into a mobile platform, rather than a physical accessory. The app turns the smartphone into the VR headset, with the ability to track movement and provide an enhanced viewing experience. The notion of providing augmented reality through a smartphone device makes the experience much more accessible to consumers that are able to simply download DayDream, rather than purchase an accompanying tech accessory.
