Google didn't really touch upon this missing feature during its Pixel 2 launch. It builds on Google's advancements in computer vision and machine learning, combined with Google knowledge graph which underpins Google Search. Google announced that 250 apps and games are now available for Daydream, up from the 25 apps and games available past year.
