YouTube VR for the Oculus Go is here

YouTube VR for Oculus Go is finally here

The app will be available via the Oculus Store starting today but we're also curious to find out if the app will also be available on the upcoming Oculus Quest headset which promises microSD card support as well as night and low-power modes.

In September, YouTube announced plans to launch its VR application on the Oculus Go platform.

YouTube also announced some more news geared towards VR creators Monday: The video service is bringing its VR180 creator app, which aims to simplify the publishing of 180-degree video content, to Windows.

The teaming up of Facebook and Google looks out of place for the latest YouTube VR app, but this is the first time the app is accessible to non-Google products. The friendly feature that we have mentioned earlier is the social features, which lets users watch videos with headset-wearing friends, this will let you enjoy your VR experience together with your friends.

Agra woman bleeds to death after gruesome monkey attack
The incident is far from uncommon, in a country where monkey attacks are a common occurrence, second only to dogs. Dhirendra Jumas, the baby's uncle, told the BBC the family was heartbroken and the baby's mother is distraught.

Interestingly, Oculus Go has a casting feature that will allow people to stream their VR experiences to friends on mobile devices or TVs.

The Oculus Go headset is priced at $199, and YouTube VR is free to download now.

With other apps looking to fill that gap Google likely didn't want to lose its dominance in the video market, so it brought YouTube to Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR nearly at the same time this summer, via Steam and Oculus Store respectively.

What remains to be seen, is whether YouTube's platform acquisition will continue at this rate.
