About YouTube VR

YouTube is one of the great VR apps to have in your arsenal. It is one of the largest sources of VR content on the Internet. There are tons of videos and channels you can follow that provide everything from entertainment to educational video for you to watch. It’s been one of the few platforms where VR has really taken off and there really is a lot of stuff there if you want to check it out. YouTube is free for most of its features. YouTube Red removes advertising and enables some extra stuff. It’ll remove the advertising and enable background listening.

What is YouTube VR

YouTube is one of the best online resources to get your hands on 360-degree videos for free. Like other Google apps, YouTube VR is available for free too.

In order to enjoy VR videos on YouTube, you can either get a cost efficient cardboard or go for an expensive Samsung Gear VR. It also allows you to search for videos with your voice, providing a totally hands-free experience. This app does pretty much exactly what you'd expect it to do - namely serve up all of YouTube's growing 360 content in one easy to navigate place.

How to find VR videos on YouTube

First you need to find a VR video on YouTube, the easiest way being by searching for the keyword “180vr”, for example: “180vr roller coaster”. Simply play the video, and you’ll notice that you can move the camera position by tilting your smartphone. You’ll also find a Google Cardboard icon on the bottom right of the video, which you can tap to enter virtual reality viewing mode.

Our favourites include the Natural History museum's Rhomaleosaurus exhibit video. It's one of those giant underwater dinosaurs with nasty-looking teeth, which comes to life before your very eyes, in a rather alarmingly realistic fashion.

As for the separate YouTube VR app, it’s available on Google Daydream-ready smartphones, and it’s arguably one of the best and most polished Android VR experiences, offering a fully immersive interface.

Oh, and it's also worth checking out the VR games for kids too.
