YouTube App VR goes Live on Oculus Go; BBC launches VR comedy

Video sharing network is now available on all major VR headsets following the launch of its app this summer

YouTube‘s VR app has arrived on Oculus Go, bringing the largest library of content on the web to Facebook’s entry-level VR device.

The video sharing network is now available on all major VR headsets following the launch of its app on Samsung’s Gear VR this summer as well as its version of the app for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Playstation VR.

YouTube also announced news for its creators yesterday: It is bringing its VR180 creator app, which aims to simplify the publishing of 180-degree video content, to Windows.

Also, to make VR audio more immersive, YouTube is now offering creators the ability to add “headlocked” audio to their VR videos.

Meanwhile the BBC has release its first VR comedy film, Kurupt FM, produced by UK independent TV producer Roughcut TV and BBC VR Hub.

The five-minute VR film, a spin off from its hit comedy series People Just Do Nothing, imagines the viewer as a record company boss that has been kidnapped by the crew of pirate radio station Kurupt FM, in an attempt to try and convince the viewer to sign them to their record label.

The BBC VR app can be downloaded from the Oculus Store and is available for the Oculus Go and Samsung Gear VR.
