Google today announced Daydream, a brand new platform for expanding virtual reality to more devices.

The Daydream spec will be defined so hardware makers can make sure they create compatible phones. Android N will be able to tell if phones are Daydream ready based on the sensors, display, and processor within.

Android N brings improvements to performance VR thanks to low latency (20ms) and the simplified system user interface. At the same time, Google created a blueprint for Daydream-compatible headsets.

It will share the headset / controller blueprints with device makers. Google believes a secondary controller (like a small remote) will help the Daydream VR experience.

Google expects Daydream-ready devices, including phones from Samsung, Alcatel, and Asus, to reach the market by fall.
