VR technology is slowly gaining the potential to become the next billion-dollar business. With that being the case, we’ve seen several apps for various platforms released with VR in mind, so it should come as no surprise to realize the Video 360° app for Windows 10 has done the same.

This isn’t full VR implementation by any means, but it should be good enough for viewing videos and photos in 360°. Yes, the latest update to the Video 360° app makes it possible for users to view their images in 360 degrees, improving the user experience.

To use the VR feature, users of the app must have a mobile VR device such as Google Cardboard. We’re not certain if the Samsung VR headset is capable of working with Video 360°, but it should be possible because it isn’t so different from Google’s implementation of VR.

If you’re lacking a VR headset, that’s fine because it’s possible to just move your phone around content in 360°. Furthermore, since the app is available for Windows 10 on the desktop, users can take advantage of the mouse and keyboard to interact with photos and videos on their computer.

Here’s the app’s changelog:

  • New feature: You can read 360° images/photos now (local files or URI)
  • Some Bug fixes

Bear in mind, Video 360° is not free. To get it, potential users must pay $1.99 via the Windows Store. It’s a great app and well worth the money if you’re into viewing photos and videos differently from most. The app delivers in what it sets out to do and that’s all that matters.

We hope to see more VR content in the near and distant future. We know HTC is working on VR games for its Vive headset, and Microsoft is moving to get VR to the masses with Project Scorpio.

Video 360° can be bought and downloaded right here from the Windows Store.
