PlayStation VR Now Supports YouTube’s 360-Degree Videos

Sony announced that its PlayStation VR HMD now supports YouTube’s 360-degree videos.

Games are the PSVR’s focus, but Sony also wants the headset to offer a well-rounded media experience. This was previously limited to a “big screen” mode that allowed people to watch videos as if they were being projected onto a giant display. Considering the fact that PSVR relies on a PlayStation 4, which is probably connected to a real television set, this simulated theater probably wasn’t the best use of the virtual reality (VR) platform’s capabilities.

PSVR debuted in October 2016 to a rather warm reception from VR enthusiasts. In the few months since its launch, many games and VR experiences have made their way to the platform. Sony even as it’s released the souped-up PS4 Pro, the company has continued to work towards making PSVR a viable platform for consumer VR.

The updated YouTube app can be downloaded now from the PlayStation Store.
