YouTube launches impressive VR update for Android

Grab a Cardboard headset for under £10

As well as a host of new VR functions, Google has also made it possible to watch any YouTube video through an Android-compatible headset. Viewers can select the “Cardboard” option from the watch menu and go from there.

Speaking about YouTube’s VR update on the website’s blog, a spokesperson said: “If we’ve learned anything in the past 10+ years at YouTube it’s that capturing and sharing videos is a great way to bring people there with you.”

“Virtual reality (VR) makes the experience of being there even more awesome and immersive.”
