Thanks to the Video 360 app for Windows 10, users can control the camera angle in virtual reality experiences. However, the app is currently only available for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile users — something that might change soon, according to one of the app’s developers.

Developer @poppyto on Twitter revealed that the Windows 10 Video 360 app would be coming to the Xbox One sometime this week. The app is expected to receive an update for the Universal Windows platform that will bring support for Xbox One consoles.

While the developer did not provide more details about the upcoming update, the anticipated arrival of Video 360 on Xbox will let you view 360° videos on your gaming console. The app’s description on the Microsoft Store reads:

The 3D Virtual Reality Headsets are supported (such as Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard etc.) Try this amazing experience to control the camera angle: a total immersion. Use this media player with Tubecast to enjoy Youtube videos 360 degrees (4K supported).

Users can also change the camera angle using the following:

  • XBOX Gamepad

The app’s features also include:
