Although the Daydream VR headset still has to reach the market, Google has just made the Daydream Keyboard app available for download. This app will allow its users to type while using the upcoming virtual reality headset.

Google will soon bring the Daydream VR headset to the market, but in the meantime, they have just decided to unleash the companion keyboard app that will be compatible with it. This product is not the first one of its kind since Samsung's Gear VR keyboard has been around for a while now and both are quite similar. 

According to the official Play Store page, "Daydream Keyboard is an on-screen virtual reality keyboard for text entry in Daydream applications. Some Daydream apps will not work if you uninstall Daydream Keyboard. Daydream Keyboard is only compatible with Daydream-ready phones." Google Daydream Keyboard also looks similar to the stock Google Keyboard that comes with Nexus devices or last year's Moto handsets.

The app is freely available for download via the Google Play Store. Although it has only been available for less than a week, it has been downloaded between 1,000 and 5,000 times, having 18 user reviews and a rating of 4.7 points out of 5.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
