New Daydream VR Euphrates Platform Update Enhances All Devices

What made the AR talk so special is the concept of a shared AR.

Teachers can now place students in an augmented reality environment through multiple devices for an interactive learning. However, the sources also noted that Google is cooperating with another smartphone maker to develop a different type of AR smartphone.

Google stressed on its intentions to put Daydream on par with its existing platforms - Android and Chrome. The Asus Zenfone AR is meant to arrive later this year. Yesterday, it announced that in the near future manufacturers will be able to build standalone Daydream VR headsets which will not have any wires or even require a PC to be connected to.

Just like its AR platform, the idea of a shared experience also applies to Daydream. This way you will be able to jump into VR without being disconnected from the world if you so wish.

A new channel by the name of "Discovery" will be available to search for new VR content.

Oil prices up 2% after deal to extend supply cut
This extended agreement by Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation helped oil prices to get a hike in the market on Monday. OPEC wants to reduce global oil inventories to their five-year average but so far has struggled to do so.

Lastly, the update will look to improve the UI of Daydream platform by adding a new dashboard in VR for quick access to settings and notifications, as well as the ability to switch apps easily.

YouTube will be getting a VR version of its mobile app. With the in-built support for Google Cast, users will be able to screencast what they see on the headset, to a connected Chromecast-equipped TV and also watch or share YouTube videos in VR. Now, this seems somewhat inspired from Facebook Spaces that was showcased last month.

Google's Seurat is a new technology that brings enhanced 3D graphics into mobile VR. It's available on Google's editor and mobile devices. For developers, it makes for a time-efficient way of breaking down 3D scenes for easy rendering on phones; for consumers it translates into film-quality graphics for immersive mobile experience. According to Google, the new engine will use simple tricks and some coding to render high-fidelity graphics to make VR more immersive and closer to reality. On the day two of Google I/O 2017 developer conference, the company reiterated its focus on the newer technology for immersive experiences.

The next big addition coming to Daydream 2.0 this summer is Chrome VR, which will allow users 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.
