YouTube has a playlist of VR180 content from beta testers here. In short, that suggests that YouTube's active user base of 1.5 billion tend to use the website and dedicated app for more than just a quick browse.

The new format from YouTube and Google's Daydream VR team promises to make it easier to create VR content from a range of forthcoming VR cameras from YI, Lenovo, and LG.

So, what's the advantage to a 180-degree VR video over a full 360-degree video one? In a YouTube blogpost, the company says VR180 video can be viewed on Cardboard, Daydream, and PSVR headsets. These cameras are not only great for creators looking to easily make VR content, but also anyone who wants to capture life's highlights in VR. Also on the docket is a feature that will let users share videos from the YouTube app. With almost 75 percent users focusing on only what is in front of them, the new VR180 format should make sense for them.

In other news, the YouTube TV service has gone from five markets to 10, and is now available in Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit, Houston, Miami, Minneapolis-St.

While you won't be able to see what's behind you in 180-degree videos, according to Google, the new format will offer the same 3D immersive experience you would expect a good VR experience to deliver.

The last time the video giant reported such a metric was in 2013 when it said it had surpassed 1bn users streaming video per month. The feature will be available in Latin America and expand throughout the US soon. In 2016, there is also a significant increase of views in its live stream feature.

Wojcicki previewed 12 new projects coming to YouTube Red.

Lenovo points to its standalone Daydream headset and camera on a page for its Google VR partnership. There's also mention of the 37 original series and movies that have launched on YouTube Red, and the fact they've generated almost a quarter billion views.

"We know that virtual reality videos can be really powerful, which is why we invested in supporting 360 and VR formats for over two years", said Frank Rodriguez, product manager at YouTube, in a blog post.
