Google updates Daydream app with battery indicator, more

The Daydream application in the Google Play Store has just received a new update that adds a couple of useful features and improvements. If you own the Google's Daydream VR, then you probably know that there's no way to know how much battery your phone has while using the headset.

Well, not anymore, as the latest update brings a controller battery indicator, which allows you to see the level of your battery when you're in Daydream Home, Quick Settings or Play Store in VR.

Furthermore, Google added a new option for those who want to stay up to date with the latest news, offers and more. You can now sign up for the “Daydream Newsletter” from the Settings menu to receive important news.

Also, there's a new feature that allows users to choose whether to show notifications in VR by toggling the option in Quick Settings, so you'll benefit from full immersion. Lastly, Google claims the latest update to the Daydream app should improve performance and reliability.

In the same piece of news, the Daydream Keyboard app has been updated as well, and now includes four additional languages: Korean, French, Spanish and Italian. A new Korean language word autosuggest bar is available too.

They need to also add a head rotation feature as well. So when you are lying down on the couch or in bed. Then you could use Daydream VR with your head shifted up.
