A Samsung spokesperson confirmed to 9to5 Google that the new flagship would work with Daydream out of the box. That's a lot faster than the Galaxy S8 and S8+, which each took a few months before they were compatible.
This makes the Note 8 an immediate consideration for anyone who wants to use both the Gear VR and Google Daydream headsets for a variety of games and other content.
It should be noted, however, that the Note 8 is too large to fit in the existing Gear VR, so you'll have to buy a new version launching alongside the phone. It should have no issues fitting in the Daydream View headset, though.
The Note 8 is joining a limited club of phones that support Daydream, including the S8 and S8+, Moto Z, Asus ZenFone AR and Google Pixel and Pixel XL. If Google releases a new Pixel in the coming months, that list should grow even larger.
