When Google originally announced their Daydream View virtual reality headset, they also announced it would be available in 3 different colors: Snow, Crimson, and Slate. When the headset went up for pre-orders, only the Slate color was available. Starting today, the other two are also up for grabs, well, sort of.

Google made their in-house virtual reality headset, called the Daydream View, official back in the beginning of October 2016. This is part of the Daydream virtual reality platform that the company had been working on up to that point. During the originally announcement, it was revealed that the headset would be arriving in November 2016, but no specific date was given. Today, however, that has changed and we now know that the headset will be officially available on November 10th, 2016.
Google has always been hinting at brick-and-mortar stores in their future for at least a year now. While a true brick-and-mortar store by Google may be a bit of a wait from now, not including the Android stores that have opened, Google is opening a pop-up store in New York City this October 20th, 2016 to showcase their newest consumer devices.
Google really wants to make sure that their new Pixel line of phones is a success, along with the company’s newly announced Daydream View VR headset. In order to do that, Google is adding a promo code to each Pixel and Pixel XL pre-order that, when redeemed, will get you a Daydream View headset for free. However there is a slight problem, and that is most of the Pixel phones have been sold out via pre-order on the Google Store.
As part of Google’s special presentation today in San Francisco, the company announced their two new Pixel phones officially, the Pixel and Pixel XL.

Both devices are the first official phones for Daydream to use with the headset Google has been developing. Today they also made the new headset official and it is called the Daydream View.
