YouTube for Android is getting a pretty nice update today. This one brings some neat new features for those who enjoy watching content in VR. For starters, Google’s going a step further than 360-degree videos. You’ll still get 360 degrees of goodness, but when viewing through a Google Cardboard unit you’ll now get a truer sense of depth.
You’ll be able to easily distinguish between near and far objects as if you were actually at the scene. You can give it a try yourself by watching one of the various VR videos from this handy playlist.
Google is also opening up VR for every single video on YouTube when using Cardboard. This obviously won’t transform every video into a 360-degree masterpiece like the ones above, but it’ll look a lot more immersive than it would otherwise. All you’ll need is the latest update and a Cardboard unit, so drop your phone in and check it out.
