Hulu latest to cut support for Google's Daydream VR headset

Friday 13 September 2019 | 10:55 CET | News
Hulu was in 2016 one of Google's original launch partners for the Daydream. Hulu's VR app is still available for other VR headsets, including PlayStation VR, Oculus Go, Samsung Gear VR and the Oculus Rift. Variety noted that HBO, another Daydream launch partner, has also removed its support for the headset, taking out its HBO Now and HBO Go VR apps earlier this year. In June, Google itself discontinued Google Play Movies for Daydream.
