YouTube’s virtual reality app is now finally launching on Oculus Go mobile VR headset after the company announced about launching the app in September.
From today, the app will be available on the Oculus Store and it will be available for Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream VR, Song PlayStation VR, and other desktop VR headsets. For Oculus Go, it is a really good and helpful addition as it is mostly aimed at non-gaming, video VR users.
As for the app goes, YouTube VR app has support for 360-degree video and standard video in a VR theater. The app also has some social features and one can watch videos with friends who are also wearing the headset.
The app was originally available to smartphones only either through the Google Cardboard or through Google Daydream View for mobile. For Google Daydream, YouTube’s VR was working really well but due to the slow rollout of Daydream, there hasn’t been much talk about it lately.
Due to the popularity of YouTube on each platform, it is on, it is now becoming a standard for streaming videos on every platform. YouTube’s VR app will definitely see a lot of success coming to its way with its release today but it is not known whether it will be available for the upcoming Oculus Quest or not.
