YouTube To Soon Support 360-Degree Video Uploads

Good news for YouTube users. Google has confirmed that it will be adding native support for 360-degree videos to its streaming video service. It means that the user would eventually be able to take all the crazy footage captured with his cameras like the Ricoh Theta, Kodak SP360, Giroptic 360cam, VSN V.360, Bublcam, and more, and share those moments with their your friends through YouTube. Assuming YouTube figures out a way to take the results from those rather differently shaped cameras and make them work. That seems to be the goal.

Though more details were not given by Google, but a statement by YouTube spokesperson said, the company is working to support 360 degree videos in the coming weeks
Where these videos could get really interesting is when the user can view them in virtual reality. Samsung just launched its Milk VR service to provide 360-degree videos for the Gear VR headset, but YouTube and Google Cardboard could make for a potent combination too.
