YouTube adds VR gaming content

Monday 13 March 2017 | 10:46 CET | News
YouTube teamed up with gaming creators and publishers to start offering VR and 360-degree gaming videos which can be watched using the YouTube VR app available on Daydream or with Google Cardboard. Viewers who don't have a headset can still get the 360-degree video experience on their mobile phone or desktop. Viewers can check out gameplay from global creators as well as gaming-themed live action videos celebrating games like 'Call of Duty', 'League of Legends', 'Clash of clans', 'Red vs. Blue', 'Wonder quest' and 'Minecraft'. Documentaries and content from top-events are also accessible.
