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
The stability of Daydream View VR has been dramatically improved with updates, but if you need to force-repair, things to try in order:
- Reset and re-pair the controller
- Uninstall and reinstall VR services and Daydream app.
- 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.
