Softonic review

A virtual video player for the 21st century

YouTube VR is a free video play and application for YouTube that allows you to view video content in 360-degrees in a special theatre mode. It’s able to provide the full YouTube experience and then take it to another level by incorporating interactive controls and special viewing modes that are unlike anything possible in the standard version of the app.

Immerse yourself in video content

YouTube VR doesn’t just play videos in front of your eyes, it takes you on a journey. When watching videos, whether in 360-degrees or a standard viewing, YouTube VR enters theatre mode, which mimics the big-screen experience. With a boxed-in feel that does away with outside light, you’ll feel like you’re at the cinema. Combined with spacial audio to hear real-world sounds that increase the intensity of the video’s sound, you’ll get an experience that is unparalleled.

Standard YouTube sign-in

With YouTube VR, sign in to YouTube just as you would in the standard app. View your subscriptions, playlists, history and more for a personalized experience. You can also search using keyboard or voice controls and continue watching a video while you do it.
