If you are using a Windows 10 PC and have the latest feature update known as Creators Update installed, then you are good to go experience some fun 360-degree videos right on your daily PC. One of the feature additions to the Movies & TV app was the ability to play immersive 360-degree video content.
Since Windows 10 supports a variety of 360° cameras for capturing your own content, if you already have your personal 360° video creations, you can just experience the same in the Movies & TV app.
Here’s how to get started:
Launch the Movies & TV app, and head to the “360° videos” section.
Click on a video to start playing it. If you’re viewing from your Windows 10 PC, simply hold and drag your mouse around to view the 360° videos.
If you’re on your Windows Phone or Windows 10 tablet, you can swipe or tilt or drag in any direction to look around in all directions to enjoy 360° of video.
With Windows Mixed Reality Headsets coming later this year, you can step it up and get in to mixed reality entertainment where it gets a lot more engaging.
