Playstation VR adds support for YouTube 360 videos

Today, Sony announced that the Playstation VR (reviewed here) would now be able to view 360 videos on YouTube, opening its vast library of 360 videos to its users.
Sony enabled 360 video support for the PSVR a couple of weeks after its launch.  However, users could not watch YouTube videos unless they first downloaded the 360 video to a USB drive then played the video on the drive with PSVR's Media Player.

This is an exciting development not only for PSVR owners, but also for 360 content creators because it will increase the audience for their 360 videos on YouTube.
