S8/8+ Daydream Support - Incoming patch?

So Samsung has released a patch to enable Daydream support on the S8/S8+. 

Verizon in the US has already pushed it:

I'm wondering if there's any word on when Rogers will push this update?

Hello @DrewLazz

At the moment there is no word yet when this update will come out. Unfortunately this has to get approved by Samsung Canada and then pushed to the carrier for a release of the update. I will message my contact within Samsung Canada and see what they say. Samsung US approved of the S8 and S8+ to work with the Daydream from Google. Now it's Samsung Canada to approve this and let it get the update.

Thanks! I'll look forward to hearing the answer. I've got a daydream set lying around, and I'm excited to give an 835 powered device with a 2k, 571ppi device a whirl.

Ha! Great timing on this. I just finished pulling the OTA update, and Daydream is installed and working!
