YouTube VR Using Experience

YouTube VR supports a new wave of 360 degree, spherical videos that unfold all around you. The so-called YouTube 360 videos will be specially promoted in the YouTube VR app, including high res stereo 3D ones filmed with Google’s special Jump camera, a collaboration with action camera company GoPro. Well, GoPro is quite well known for its wide angle and high screen pixels. Other brands like SJCAM seems to be a challenge for GoPro. Users will be able to use your voice to search for specific videos instead of tapping out letters on a keyboard, or channel surf by clicking from one video to the next. However, flat videos won’t necessarily be the main attraction.  While wearing a VR headset, the videos are front and center in the YouTube VR app, constantly playing even as you use the app’s appear-out-of-thin-air menu to select what you want to watch next.
