The statement seemed convincing when T-Mobile started rolling out an update promising Daydream compatibility on the Galaxy flagships.
The carrier revealed on Tuesday, July 25, that it has started rolling out a new update for all the users of Samsung's 2017 flagship device users on its network.
Verizon is pushing the package to all eligible smartphones as an Over-The-Air (OTA) update, so it may take a few days before it reaches all units. However, it is unknown why Verizon has suddenly chose to add this particular support, considering that the handsets already support the Gear VR headsets from Samsung.
Other new features that were included in the updated version of the S8 are a new set of colors for the phone's navigation bar and a dot in the bottom left corner of the screen that can make the navigation bar disappear whenever the users wish to. Once updated, both phones will be able to view various Daydream experiences and videos through a Daydream View headset, available through Verizon or the Google Store. However, this functionality will only work if the Profile Sharing option is enabled from the Contacts tab. These updates' main goal is to offer a great number of possibilities for the future user, as well as customized features to suit their needs. According to Verizon, this software update primarily brings support for Google Daydream VR, the most recent Android security patches, along with other enhancements. However, you may also manually check for the update by heading to the Settings app, navigating to "About Phone", selecting "System Updates" and then "Check for Updates". It is important however to ensure that there is adequate battery life remaining and the device is connected to a stable Wi-Fi connection before starting the update.
