Virtual reality is ready to explode in popularity. Every manufacturer under the sun has a VR headset these days, including Samsung, HTC, and even Google. If anything is holding virtual reality back it’s the lack of content. In January Google promised 360-degree videos would be coming to YouTube. Today the feature finally went live, and there are some cool videos to show it off.
The playlist below has 6 videos that can be viewed in 360-degrees. If you view them in a browser you’ll see a d-pad in the upper left corner to control your view, but the real magic happens when you watch on your Android device. Load up one of the videos in the YouTube app and just move your device to look around the scene. It’s really cool. The experience gets even better if you have a Samsung Gear VR or Google Cardboard lying around.
