Last year, Google announced the Daydream View, its first ever mobile VR headset. Not only was it powered by Android, it could also be used with a variety of different Daydream-compatible phones and it was covered in fabric. Today, the company announced the brand new version of the View, and this time, it comes in multiple colors: Charcoal, Fog and Coral. It's also available for $99, which is $20 more than last year's iteration.

One of the reasons for the higher price is that it has a wider field of view. There's also now a slot for the controller, and a removable head strap for better comfort. It measures 6.6 x 4.6 x 3.9 inches and weighs in at 9.2 ounces. Daydream-compatible phones include the newly announced Pixel 2, the older Pixel, the Galaxy S8, the S8+, the Note 8, the Moto Z, and the Moto Z2.

Google also announced a lot more content that would be available on Daydream. There's VR concerts with Ed Sheeran in "Austin City Limits Backstage," a VR original from Felix & Paul, a Discovery series called "TRVLVR" and how you can experience IMAX 3D in your own home thanks to the Daydream View.
