YouTube's new VR180 format makes virtual reality easy to create

YouTube CEO Unveils User Numbers, Plans For VR And Live Streaming

Unlike 360 degree video, VR180 only has 180 degree field of view. The new VR180 format will just serve as a stepping stone before graduating to the more demanding 360-degree format.

The access has now been opened for VR180, Google's new video format that will forge high-resolution VR videos with what's in front of you.

Wojcicki said YouTube is also expanding a feature that lets users share videos from the YouTube app.

In other news, the YouTube TV service has gone from five markets to 10, and is now available in Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit, Houston, Miami, Minneapolis-St.

Wojcicki noted that YouTube now boasts 1.5 billion logged-in users per month (on top of all the views that come from viewers who aren't logged in), and that the platform has seen a 4x increase in live video in the a year ago. VR180 videos will simply presented as flat and stretched a bit so users won't have to actually move around to see the whole video. In a blog post, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki wrote that the service has 1.5 billion monthly users who spend "over an hour a day" watching video on mobile devices.

Easy to use, no need to have expertise in editing, or how you need to move your camera for best imagery and videography. The video sharing platform also announced some changes to how they handle multiple video formats.

In years gone by, the Google-owned video-streaming titan has used the event to make a number of notable announcements, such as new tools for creators and mobile livestreaming. From vlogs, to makeup tutorials to music videos - your videos will work great in VR.

The Daydream team is also working with manufacturers to build cameras specifically for VR180. Z Cam will be one of Google's first partners under the program.

What is more, the price of the VR180 cameras are expected to be roughly the same price of a point-and-shoot camera.

For starters, YouTube Red is getting all-new content in 2017, specifically more than 40 new shows and movies. Creators can also apply to borrow one from the company's studios, called YouTube Spaces, which are located in major cities, according to The Verge.
