It is now easier to live vicariously through the adventures of other people using the PSVR. Today on Twitter, the official PlayStation account announced that the PS4 YouTube app has been updated to enable 360-degree video while in use with the headset.

YouTube has supported 360-degree video for a while now, a feature that has been used primarily on smartphones (and in conjunction with lower grade VR options like Google Cardboard) using accelerometers, but this support should bring higher fidelity to the experience with a more advanced headset.
Though, it’s worth noting that the PSVR uses only a front camera while in use to track movement, and can have trouble with stability the further it’s turned away from the camera’s view. Regardless, the tweet also includes a handy link to the virtual reality channel (auto-generated by YouTube) that includes a host of 360-degree videos to almost vomit during. Good luck with that.
