Sony’s PlayStation VR headset now has support for virtual reality videos on the world’s largest online video platform, YouTube. Version 1.09 of the YouTube app for PlayStation 4 adds support for Sony’s virtual reality headset. What this simply means is that PlayStation 4 owners who own a PlayStation VR headset can now use it to watch virtual reality videos available on YouTube.
PlayStation VR is meant to be a headset primarily for VR gaming but there are quite a lot of VR video apps available on the PlayStation Store. Owners who want to experience something other than gaming in VR can use these apps to indulge in immersive virtual reality experience. The YouTube app has now been added to that list.
According to several reports online, version 1.09 of the YouTube app for PlayStation 4 is rolling out, albeit slowly. It’s not live across all regions just yet so it’s probably going to be a couple of days before the latest version of the YouTube app for PS4 goes live everywhere.
The app update will easily enable PlayStation VR owners to use their headset to watch virtual reality content available on YouTube. When users launch the app while wearing the headset, they are given a choice to either run the PlayStation VR version or the Normal version of the app. What the options do is pretty self-explanatory.
If you’ve not yet received version 1.09 of the app, try manually checking for the update, perhaps that will do the trick.
