sky vr app f1

Sky has taken another step forward with virtual reality, bringing its VR app to the Google Daydream platform. Previously, the app was available on Google's Cardboard system, which is a more rudimentary way of watching VR.

Announcing the news in a blog post, Google said: "The Sky app showcases a range of immersive 360 videos, including from Sky's partners like 'Star Wars: Red Carpet', 'Anthony Joshua – Becoming World Champion' and clips from Disney's 'The Jungle Book'."

Google Daydream is a more sophisticated headset than Cardboard. It's also more comfortable, but only works with six phones so far, whereas Cardboard is compatible with almost any handset.

About a year ago, Sky unveiled its own in-house production studio that solely works on virtual reality content across its sports, factual and entertainment portfolios. It launched the Sky VR app in October.
