It may be fun to zone out on the latest season of House of Cards on your standard television, but watching Frank Underwood plot political shenanigans in virtual reality may amp things up a notch.

Netflix released Monday a new app of its popular streaming video service that works with Google’s (GOOG) Daydream View VR headset.

The app, called Netflix VR, is available to download on the Google Play online store. As of now, the app only works for Google’s own VR headset, but once other hardware manufacturers build their own headsets from the Daydream View blueprints, it’s likely the app would work for those as well.

Netflix VR doesn’t appear to be radically different from the standard Netflix (NFLX) app, except instead of a traditional welcome screen where users can select their flicks, Netflix VR puts people in a digital version of a living room inside of a quaint cabin.

People can look around in the room, which contains some red chairs, a sofa, and a few little lamps, and choose their movies from a digital television that contains the standard Netflix selection screen.

A couple of user reviews from the Google Play store complain about a lack of intuitive design in regards to navigating the virtual cabin, with one person lamenting the fact that certain VR viewing settings are only available to see if one looks and interacts with a particular chandelier.

Last September, Netflix released a similar VR viewing app for the Samsung Gear VR headset.

Like the Google Daydream View, a mobile phone is required to power the Samsung Gear VR, and not a powerful computer, like the HTC Vive and Facebook’s (FB) Oculus Rift headset.
