The Google-owned video hosting and sharing site will be supporting 360-degree video

YouTube is keen on exploring new video formats as shown by its bold move toward supporting 360-video. This movie format records footage similar to what could be seen by a floating eye. YouTube’s platform will allow viewers to scroll through the frame of the videos, moving the camera’s view up or down, side to side.

The 360-degree video provides a more engaging experience, capturing a whole environment instead of the singular view seen in regular “2D” videos.

YouTube’s announcement comes in partnership with crowdfunded start-up Giroptic.
