One year has passed since YouTube took the plunge and started supporting 360-degree videos on its platform. A calculated move that payed off today, when VR gears are more common by the day and people are starting to see its benefits. In that spirit, YouTube is continuing its project to offer immersive moments by launching 360-degree live streaming and spatial audio #realitymagic
To celebrate their launch, YouTube will livestream select performances from Coachella, in 360-degree video, this weekend! Also, expect hearing music like never before with the spatial audio technology that makes everything much more raw. The new feature can be experienced starting now, with this playlist for an Android device.
YouTube is convinced it’s helping pave the way to a new era of digital happenings: ” Students can now experience news events in the classroom as they unfold. Travelers can experience faraway sites and explorers can deep-sea dive, all without the physical constraints of the real world.”
