The company is also starting a VR180 certification program, with Z Cam as one of the first partners. In the coming weeks, the mobile app will adapt to the size the user chooses to watch videos in. This format delivers 3-D video while capturing 180-degrees.

However, unlike 360-degree video, VR180 content easily flattens to a 2D screen with minimal stretching or warping, making it appear like an everyday YouTube video - no head-tilting or swiping around the screen required. VR180 videos will also be viewable on the PlayStation VR YouTube app and will also support live streaming. YouTube just announced VR180 a format that is created to make 3D content a lot easier to access. Eligible creators can also apply to rent a VR180-enabled camera from one of its YouTube Spaces. Google has always been good at bells and whistles, and these new features are likely to further draw eyeballs to YouTube's mobile platform.

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. Keeping in mind the issue, Google has rolled out a new 180-degree video format for YouTube.

But, there are times you find yourself stuck with a vertical video and you have to watch the same with the black strips on each side. In a couple weeks, it'll be available in Latin America and then throughout the USA soon after that.
