Google announced a new virtual reality platform, Daydream, at its annual IO event. Huawei will be one of the manufacturers to get on board early and looks set to announce devices by the end of the year.
In a press release, Huawei said that it is looking forward to “working with Google and other global industry leaders to build an ecosystem and bring rich and compelling Daydream experiences to users through transformative innovations in VR devices, applications and content.”
It says that it will have Daydream-ready phones, headsets, and controllers to announce by the end of the year. It’s as yet unclear if these devices will actually be out by the end of the year or if they’ll just be announced.
Google says that Daydream will include support for several Google apps, as well as access to VR content from the likes of Netflix, Hulu, and HBO.
