YouTube Brings 360-degree Videos to TV’s
During its I/O 2017 developer conference, Google announced that YouTube’s 360-degree videos will no longer be exclusive for Virtual Reality headsets owners.
YouTube’s 360-degree Videos Coming to Other Platforms
Google isn’t only focused on making its search engine way smarter than already is. The company just announced that YouTube’s 360-degree videos will launch on Android TV, Xbox One, PS4, and even some smart TVs aren’t just about its search engine getting smarter. The company has also announced that YouTube’s 360-degree videos are coming soon to TVs for the first time.
Sarah Ali, the YouTube product manager, said that the new feature is about providing an experience that no other traditional TVs can’t match.
Google claims that YouTube 360-degrees for TVs will launch in the next few months. So, if you own a PlayStation 4, an Xbox One, an Android TV or perhaps a 4K Samsung or LG smart TV, you will definitely enjoy access to the wide availability of 360-degree videos that YouTube has to offer. You can use a remote controller or a gamepad to rotate the environment as you watch the videos.
If you have tried this before on a smartphone you will notice the difference and you won’t require swiping in order to get different views. 360-degrees videos on YouTube will definitely look much better on bigger screens.
