Here is what we are able to do with Internet on Daydream to this point.
For these of us who use the Daydream loads, we all know it has a significant draw back, the shortage of an internet browser to make use of Google. On condition that Google continues to be, primarily, an promoting platform it appears foolish to not have an app to make use of in Daydream to indicate these ads. Enter Chrome 61, which brings internet browsing to Daydream.
We have got all the small print for you right here!
What’s Chrome 61?
Chrome 61 is solely the newest construct of the usual chrome in your cellphone. It’s the first construct to assist VR view of internet pages although it’s pretty restricted proper now.
