    Does anyone use a desk dock for their Nexus 6? I found this one that looks like it would work, and it's cheap: http://www.amazon.com/Universal-Micr...cUvbUpU4436255

    I don't have my Nexus 6 yet, but can someone tell me if or how this or any desk dock works with Daydream? According to this from Google: https://support.google.com/nexus/answer/2818748?hl=en 'By default, your device may only Daydream when it is docked. If you want your device to Daydream whenever it is plugged in, make sure to set "When to Daydream" as "Either" or "While charging."'

    Are the docks wired for the phone to know it's docked like the Galaxy Notes I have had, or how does the phone know that it's docked and not plugged into a charger? Are there special docks that enable dock mode for the Nexus 6? If so, I haven't been able to find any yet.

    I just wanted to mention that I actually bought the Desk Dock that you recommend, and I love it. It works great!

    Cool! Is it recognized as a dock by the phone so that Daydream starts on its own?

    Honestly, I am not sure since I don't have the Daydream feature enabled.

    I do know, however that it does a good job of charging, and the screen is remains easily accessible.

    This thread NOT is about a dock can charge or not. It's about if it can be used for option "When to daydream" and "While docked" option. I was wondering myself. I have a different dock while it does a good job of charging my phone, daydream won't work when I select "While docked" option. I use daydream for night clock so I don't want to use "While charging" option because the clock would turn on whenever I charge.
