Best Movies On Netflix For Thrill-Seekers, Plus Netflix Now Available On Google VR Headset [Trailers]

It looks like some of the best movies on Netflix are headed to your Google VR headset. And if you are seeking thrills in your new virtual reality theater, some of the best movies on Netflix provide plenty of mystery, suspense, and breathtaking action. Since virtual reality entertainment has become more affordable, more people are using it; since more people are using it, more streaming apps are becoming available for Google VR Daydream: Hulu, HBO, YouTube, Google Play Movies, and now, Netflix. As Android Police reported, Netflix is now available on Google Daydream VR.

“The app is simply titled ‘Netflix VR,’ and at the moment it’s more or less the same thing as Netflix on Android TV, just with a gigantic virtual screen and a swanky digital environment to watch your shows in. All of the content currently up on Netflix is accessible in the virtual interface via the Daydream controller. If you’ve used the Android TV client with its remote and/or a game controller, you should know what to expect.”

Google Daydream VR is currently available for their new Pixel phone, but as seen in the video below, the VR program will soon be compatible for other mobile devices. And in the meantime, most likely some programming whiz will release an app for other phones to become compatible.

Netflix programming is not currently on a VR platform, but watching your favorite movies in a virtual theater is sure to be an entertaining experience. Many expect media companies like Netflix and HBO to eventually develop their programming for a full virtual experience. But until then, YouTube has plenty of videos that will make your Daydream virtually come to life.
