YouTube launches 360-degree live streaming 19 April 2016

Virtual Reality is trending, and YouTube brings everyone one step closer to it. Two new features have been added to the leading video streaming platform – 360-degree live streaming & spatial audio. Music mega event Coachella will be the 1st to take advantage of this immersive streaming experience.

360-degree supporting cameras like select GoPro cams will be required to create content for this platform. Maximum supported resolution is 1440p 60fps – hence better than HD. Complementing the 360-degree immersive experience is the spatial audio that will give a more realistic feeling to the ears. In the words of YouTube’s Chief Product Officer Neal Mohan – “where depth, distance and intensity all play a role,”. 360-degree videos will be available as on-demand first, and on Android.
