Following the October 4 announcement of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones, as well as the firm’s Daydream View VR headset (which works in tandem with them), Google has now revealed a full list of Daydream VR “experiences” users can enjoy.

Google has partnered with a wide range of brands to give Daydream adopters a fairly impressive starting catalogue of apps, games, and services, including HBO, Netflix, Hulu, WSJ, EA, and others. Naturally, at present the only people who will be accessing this content are those who’ve purchased a Pixel or Pixel XL and a Daydream View headset, but Google’s plans for Daydream will allow for Android OEMs to make compatible smartphone handsets going forward – we’d take a guess saying probably headsets too.

Amongst the services offered there are exploration and location-based applications, including tooled-up version of Google Maps/Street View, and Google Photos, while Hello Mars and Ocean Rift offer quite different location-based experiences. There are also 30 VR-ready games, some of which are re-jigged ones from the Android space, such as Need For Speed: No Limits, while others are purpose-built VR games like Daydream Blue and film tie-in J.K Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.
