In case you hadn’t noticed, Google likes VR. So much so that its video platform, YouTube, is going to introduce live 360-degree streaming at some point in the future. If true, YouTube would distance itself as the leader in 360-degree content, further building on the platform’s support for VR content. Suddenly all those new 360-degree cameras we saw at CES don’t seem so crazy.
YouTube has supported 360-degree video for nearly a year now, and has leveraged the popularity of Cardboard as the easiest way to experience what’s possible in the world of VR.
