London: According to reports, YouTube will soon add a feature that will support 360-degree videos.
This new feature will enable the users to upload videos taken with the special 360-degree cameras that are on their way into the market and will probably make use of virtual reality headsets.
Many of those take the videos in different ways and with different results and YouTube's challenge was getting all of those different kinds of video to work on the site.
However, it's unclear whether the videos will be viewable for anyone using a computer, or if they will require a virtual reality headset to look around the scene.
It might also be available for the growing array of more high-tech goggles, including Samsung's Gear VR.
A Google spokesperson has informed that the feature will arrive "in the coming weeks."
