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.
