PSVR's YouTube App Now Lets You Watch 360-Degree Videos

Spinning around.

PlayStation 4's YouTube app has been updated, and it now lets you watch 360-degree videos while using PSVR.

Sony announced the news on its official PlayStation Twitter account. It also shared a playlist of 360-degree-enabled videos to try out, if you're curious. Check it out here.

PlayStation VR launched in October, to mixed reception. Its launch lineup was generally well-received, but one research firm soon downgraded the device's sales estimates.

GameSpot's Jimmy Thang reviewed PlayStation VR, saying it's not a must-buy at the moment.

"As a VR fan, I want PSVR to succeed, but it trips up too many times to wholeheartedly recommend at this point," he wrote. "Many of the launch titles will make a large percentage of people sick, and it may lead to the false impression that VR has to make you nauseated. If you have a PS4 and are dying to get PSVR, then I'd recommend the $499.99 bundle which includes the PlayStation Camera, two Move controllers, and PlayStation VR Worlds.

"If you have a PS4 and are simply curious about VR, I'd hold out until more titles are released. While there are a handful of fun titles, there's nothing that I've played at launch so far to indicate to me that the PSVR is a must-buy right now. For everyone else, I'd recommend saving up for a better reality."
