Issues when you make purchases

What apps can I use with Daydream?

To find apps which work with your Daydream headset, open the Play Store while using the headset. All the apps you see will work with Daydream VR.

Exit VR to complete your purchase

Sometimes you might need to exit VR mode to complete a purchase. Once you finish what you need to do, you’ll be able to continue using Daydream in VR mode.

PIN number help

To buy things on Google Play in Daydream, you’ll need a Google Account PIN number. If you don’t already have one, you’ll choose one when you set up Daydream on your device. You will have to enter it every time you make a purchase.

If you need, you can change your Google Account PIN.

Watch videos from Google Play Movies & TV in Daydream

You can watch some 3D movies for free using your Daydream VR. The 3D movies are available only within the Daydream VR Movies App on eligible devices. 

Any movies you buy on Google Play are added to your Google Play Movies & TV library. You can then watch them both within Daydream VR and normally within the Google Play Movies app.
