YouTube VR Brings its Wealth of Content to Oculus Go

YouTube VR for Oculus Go is finally here

YouTube is launching its virtual reality app on the Oculus Go mobile VR headset today.

Given Oculus Go's user base for gaming is in minority, the introduction of YouTube VR will help it gain more users consuming diverse content including those in native formats such as VR180. Simply download the app from the Oculus Store, start it, and enjoy Elton John's Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, roam around the Warner Bros' lot, and feel like you're in Japan in person, checking out their still-active arcade scene.

The partnership between one of the leading VR headset companies and Google's flagship platform for 360 and 180-degree videos may seem like a no-brainer, but YouTube VR was once only accessible through Google's own virtual reality platform, Daydream, before recently branching out to competing headsets like Samsung's Gear VR earlier this year. Including the SteamVR app for Oculus Rift, all of Oculus applications now have a YouTube app available on them. This will again serve to increase the reach of YouTube's VR app.

The YouTube VR renders support for standard videos in a VR theatre mode as well as 360-degree videos.

Interestingly, Oculus Go has a casting feature that will allow people to stream their VR experiences to friends on mobile devices or TVs. "With new and easier ways to create and watch VR content, we look forward to seeing what stories you tell, locations you transport viewers to and experiences you uncover".
