YouTube has confirmed that it will be enabling support for 360-degree video uploads in the near future, Engadget reported today. While no information was given as to how the feature would be implemented or how video playback would be supported, Google did say that users can expect to see the capability rolling out “in the coming weeks.”
This would certainly be an interesting feature to see brought to a mobile version of YouTube designed with virtual reality systems like Cardboard, which could allow viewers to simply turn their heads to see other parts of the footage.
