Netflix VR app for Daydream launched in the Google Play store
So, if you can't have enough of Netflix shows, the company has just released another mobile application aimed at Android users who own the Daydream VR. Why another Netflix app if there's already one available in the Google Play store?

We don't know the answer, but Netflix has decided not to build its VR app around the Netflix app, so you'll now have two apps that do different things, but could be joined together.

The new Netflix VR app allows subscribers to its movie streaming service who own Google's Daydream View headset to watch 36-degree video content.

Unfortunately, the Daydream View is the only VR headset supported by the Netflix VR app for the moment. Hopefully, Samsung Gear VR and other headsets will receive support in the future. You can use the VR app to watch any content available on Netflix.

Reading through the reviews posted on Google Play store, it appears that the application has some issues as many Pixel users have reported that their phones overheat after 20-30 minutes of use.

Other than that, the apps should be plain and simple to use, unlike Hulu and HBO apps that have a bit more options to take advantage of. If you have a Netflix subscription and a Daydream View, it might be worth a try.
