    Google's VR will be called Daydream.

    Sounds familiar?

    YT, Photos, Street Maps, and Google Play Movie will al be able to be watched via VR.

    I feel like Daydream seems like the offspring from Google glass, but I could be wrong.

    I see that what's new in Android is supposed to start soon, so hopefully I can get home & catch most of that.

    I'm kinda digging the Android Auto for your phone. It lets you use Android Auto with any car... kinda slick!
