It has been an incredible experience to note the many new South African brand names that have been using Virtual Reality this year.
To add to this, the Virtual Reality YouTube 360° channel has more than 1.8 million subscribers, and its action thriller “Help” has been viewed 2.5 million times. The Facebook 360 Video Platform has also been a huge hit for viewing 360° Video.

With the newly released Google Daydream, you can now completely immerse yourself in this incredible content. Instead of viewing this content on a browser, or mobile phone, the new Youtube VR app allows users to be completely immersed in all the 360° Virtual Reality content.
