Fixing Daydream View VR controller not pairing or updating

Sometimes when the Daydream controller needs an update, or just in general, it will fail to connect. It will also not re-pair. The controller light will just fast flash (not the triple flash for low battery).

Force re-pair Daydream View controller

  1. If resetting and re-pairing the controller doesn’t work:
  2. try uninstalling and reinstalling VR services and Daydream app.
  3. Follow on screen directions to re-pair when entering the fresh Daydream app.

This helped when updating from Daydream controller software version 1.0.21 to 1.0.25.
