At Google I/O Google has announced that YouTube’s 360-degree videos are coming soon to TVs, expanding beyond smartphones and web browsers for the first time. “It’s not just about the size of the screen,” YouTube product manager Sarah Ali said before demoing a 360-degree video from Coachella. “It’s about giving you an experience that [traditional] TV just can’t match.”
Google says the feature will roll out in the next few months to Android TV, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as 2017 4K TVs from LG and Samsung. Once you have access to it, you’ll be able to play 360-degree videos and use a remote or game controller to pan around the environment as you’re watching. If you’ve wanted this congrats Google has listened to your needs, I didn’t know I needed this till today.
