YouTube now supports 360-degree live streaming and spatial audio on its service, confirming reports from earlier this year stating that such a feature was in development.

Spatial audio means playing sounds the same way people actually hear - or as YouTube explains, "it's about letting you listen as you do in real life" - "where depth, distance and intensity all play a role".

YouTube has stated that select performances from the Coachella music festival will now be live streamed in 360 degrees.

Maybe I'm a minority, but I'm not a big fan of the 360 videos. I just want to sit back and relax and watch the show ... not have to sit up and and try to spin the video with the mouse pointer to see everything.

If the vlogger wanted us to see it, they would have pointed the camera at it.

I'm with Clank on this one. If I wanted to control the environment, I would put on a VR headset.
