What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're working on building a complete YouTube VR experience on Steam. With this early access version, we hope to get your feedback to help inform design and development. We'll be adding support for more VR headsets and custom in-app experiences soon.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“YouTube VR will be in Early Access through 2018. We’ll incorporate feedback from the community.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan on further optimizing VR specific controls and features as well as incorporating the learnings we get from Early Access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All of the core elements of YouTube will be available in Early Access, so you’ll be able to experience 360° and 180° videos or watch any YouTube video on YouTube VR. YouTube VR is currently optimized for HTC Vive in Early Access, but is compatible with other headsets through OpenVR. We plan to optimize for other headsets in the future.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“No, YouTube VR will remain free during and after early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We’ll be listening to your feedback via the Steam store, in-product feedback and through community channels (Twitter, Reddit, Help Forums).”
