Google's Daydream View VR headset was unveiled in October 2016

Google has announced its plan to turn its Daydream VR into a new platform based on standalone headsets, equipped with positional tracking.

This is Daydream 2.0, a.k.a. "Euphrates", and the second iteration of Google's VR platform has got some new stuff to wow its users. In order to do this, the standalone Daydream VR headset will have everything that a user would need built into it.

Google's idea of shared experiences applies to the Daydream platform as well because it will support Google Cast. One of the major announcements was Google VR headsets will be fully tracked and untethered. It will feature software support for the devices, a way to get VR content front and centre and a way to share content with others. They've show us what they can do with VR past year, launching the Daydream VR platform with matching VR-enabled phones in the Google Pixel and the Daydream View VR headset. The new VR will no longer require cables and phone. Google has also made it easier to program teleportation into games and apps so you don't have to move so much. That makes it more like a spoken, virtual version of a YouTube comments section than a closed social app like Facebook's Spaces.

In this new range of devices, they will use "WorldSense". With the promise of the upcoming standalone Google VR to be more "friction free", users may be able to use the new VR with a longer time period, Cnet noted. The upgrade is a significant step from the Daydream Holster which can only detect the head tilts and not the position.

Last, but not least, the firm also mentioned its push towards building up WebVR standards, highlighting Chrome VR - coming to Daydream this summer - which will allow you to browse the web in virtual reality. Google demonstrated that if someone is looking for furniture to buy on the web, they will be only shown the items that can fit in their house as their phone's camera will scan their living space before showing results.

All of that seems pretty interesting, especially when you consider that you will be able to experience all of these within this year.
