YouTube celebrates 1B hours viewed daily & Amit Singhal says premium VR content is in the future

Gotta give it to YouTube for its cool celebration over reaching 1 billion hours of video viewed daily. 🎉 Read the announcement here:

So what does the future of YouTube hold? Immersive virtual reality, of course.

Per +TechCrunch: "Google is pushing the next iteration of its VR efforts with Daydream to hit a wider range of devices and users — Daydream-compatible mobile handsets can be turned into VR headsets (when inserted into an accessory to mount it on your head) ... Well over 50% of all content consumption on Daydream is of YouTube content, (VP of VR Amit) Singh said, and it’s going to put more focus now on providing more premium (professional not necessarily paid) content on the platform in the form of series."
