In the beginning, Google worked only with the selected group of developers on Daydream-compatible apps. This approach helped Google to work closely with their partners and take care of the content for the latest Daydream platform in the coming months. They have also come up with limited apps where one can download through Google Play store for the latest headset ecosystem.
Google is now opening its doors to all the developers for creating apps along with company’s instructions to submit. This change in policy can have a drastic shift in mobile VR. Recently Samsung announced it and sold 5 million Gear VRs till date and was wondering whether Daydream was off to a rough beginning. Many of Daydream’s apps were installed in small numbers.
Additional options on the software might present them with good features to the consumers as the Daydream ecosystem is expanding to support additional headsets and phones, and they should have proper compatibility with one another. It is a tricky balancing act for curation and VR. If there is an issue with the app on your cell phone, it is just an inconvenience; but if there is an issue in VR app, it will cause some illness to the person who is wearing the headset. Apart from this numerous other apps are also available. So it is very difficult to find the best one.
Everybody is eager to see that what will be the overall impact on Daydream ecosystem as it evolves. Undoubtedly there are some skilled developers who are not able to get their apps on Daydream due to Google’s approach so far. There are some unskilled developers for few extra bucks will be trying to push the software which is incomplete into VR.There are more chances of seeing many Gear VR and/or ports of cardboard apps on Daydream.
