Gear VR users have had access to YouTube’s VR app since July, but now it’s Oculus Go’s turn, as Oculus’ standalone VR headset is finally getting the long-awaited YouTube VR app. It’s now available for free on the Oculus Store, letting you watch everything the video streaming platform has to offer.
YouTube VR includes support for standard 2D videos as well as 360 and 3D 360-degree content. If you’re looking for a good place to start, YouTube hosts their own VR channel, featuring a number of creators that have captured everything from underwater dives with manta rays, to up-close and personal views of Cirque du Soleil’s aerial rope artist. Content formats range the gamut from standard 2D video to decidedly more immersive content including VR180, 360, and 3D 360 video.
Users will be able to login to their YouTube accounts so you can view your subscriptions, playlists, watch history, and more.
If you’re a PC VR player, look no further than YouTube VR for Vive, Rift and Windows VR headset, which is available through Steam.
