It looks like Google may have underestimated demand for its Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones. These are the first devices that are “Made by Google” and they have been well received by customers around the world. People like it. However supply issues continue to be a problem for some models of the Pixel, particularly the Pixel XL.
So now it looks like in order to make up for the delay, Verizon is now sending out free Google Daydream View virtual reality headsets to some Pixel customers.
But why is Verizon shipping free Daydream View VR headsets? Well, it’s Google’s exclusive carrier partner in the United States. No other U.S. carrier can officially sell the Pixel or Pixel XL. If you don’t want to buy one from Verizon, you can buy an unlocked and off-contract unit from Google or through its retail partners.
Some Reddit users who ordered a Pixel are reporting that they are receiving calls from Verizon informing them that a free Daydream View headset is coming their way. Some have received their Pixel smartphones already but others who got a call have yet to get their orders. It is a good move to make these customers feel appreciated. Customers will certainly like receiving this $79 VR headset that’s compatible with their smartphones for free.
