One of the first things I wanted to do when I got my Google Daydream was to lay back and enjoy a movie. Something about watching movies in virtual reality makes me feel like a different character who is watching from the first person, and not just a spectator. Watching movies or even videos in VR is something I absolutely recommend.

While you’re getting ads for the movie you want to watch, I’ll walk you through some of the best apps to watch.

Netflix VR

With all their money, expect Netflix to do a good job, and they do. You don’t need a separate account, so if you already have Netflix you can use the VR app.

The app itself is a recreation of a Swiss chalet in the Alps, with low beams and picturesque mountain views. As places to sit and watch movies, it’s really great. You sit on a comfortable red sofa and watch a large screen TV built into the fireplace with a super weird piece of art above it. I really enjoy watching Netflix in VR, with all the options they have to offer and a great place to watch them, this is one of the best options. However, you can only watch what Netflix has to offer. What if you want to watch your own videos?
