Moto Z phones support Google's VR platform Daydream
If you own a Motorola Moto Z series phone, you might not know that your handset supports Google's VR platform Daydream. Google's Daydream website includes a list of  phones that will run Daydream branded VR products. That list is a short one that includes the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL, and the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. The Verizon exclusive DROID variants of those two are also included, of course.

The website also shows that more Daydream enabled handsets are on the way. Those models include the Huawei Mate 9 Pro and the recently announced Asus ZenFone AR.

Daydream, which was unveiled at Google I/O last year, includes certain hardware and software specs. Apps like YouTube, Google Maps Street View, Google Play Movies & TV, and Google Photos will provide a VR viewpoint with a Daydream certified headset. Third party apps like Hulu, Netflix and HBO NOW also will give users an "immersive experience."

Last November, Google introduced the Daydream View VR headset priced at $79. Unlike the Google Cardboard VR viewer, the Daydream View is made from plastic, soft cloth, and foam.

Moving forward, we expect that newer high-end phones will also feature support for Daydream.
