Unfortunately, Google pulls back its support to the Daydream VR platform. consequently, it resulted in a drop in the Daydream platform.

Finally and Fully Dead
Last year in October 2019, a report published by Venture Beat quoted that Google was seeking to withdraw its support for Daydream as initiated with Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.

Other headsets allow the users to stick their phones inside the headset and hence allow the phone to place in the close vicinity to their face which provides them a mesmerizing effect. Headsets like the Oculus, Vive, and others have developed built-in displays and hence proven their quality over the years. They have also seemed more comfortable and compatible than VR headsets for PC games.
