YouTube and Google has recently beefed up their application for YouTube users, and Carboard app users to give a fully-immersive cinematic experience in 3D.

The holiday season is in full swing, and virtual reality is a hot commodity this year.

Google Cardboard is taking the VR universe by storm with production features that empowers smart phone users with the ability to create interactive media.

Playback tends to work best with the latest version of Chrome. Desktop uses can operate the camera with the mouse to change camera positions during the live stream.

Mobile device users can download the Cardboard app, as well as the Cardboard Camera app to create and view interactive video on YouTube.

Google Play, Apple/IOS users and the Android Store currently have a an application known as Cardboard available for mobile devices. The Cardboard Camera app is also available via the Android Store. Here is a brief description of Cardboard Camera API from the Android Store.

Cardboard Camera takes VR photos—moments in time you can relive in virtual reality. Hear the sounds as they happened, and look around to see the scene in every direction. VR photos are 3D, so near things look near and far things look far.

To experience your photos in VR, pop your phone into a Google Cardboard viewer https://www.google.com/get/cardboard/.
