The headset, which is made of a soft fabric and foam rather than hard plastic, launches in November for $79. You’ll need a Daydream-compatible smartphone to use it, since that’s what functions as the headset’s screen. As of right now, the only phone that’s confirmed to work with Daydream is Google’s own smartphone, the Pixel.

Here are all the apps, games, and video content Google announced for Daydream VR:
