YouTube’s Newest Feature is Multi-Angle Viewing

YouTube absolutely dominates when it comes to viewing performances online. Now, Google is rolling out a new feature that should make for an even more better experience.

The company announced plans on Wednesday for new multi-angle videos, in which the viewer can jump back and forth between a handful of different cameras. It’s limited to a single video from a live acoustic performance by YouTube star Madilyn Bailey, for now. You can also request a chance to test out the new feature in your own videos by filling out a quick form (link below).

The feature itself works really well, with barely any lag at all. You can also control the camera angle using either your keyboard or mouse, though it doesn’t seem to work on mobile just yet. Still, we’re excited to see other musicians and YouTube stars take advantage of this new feature. It could be particularly great for watching live performances or even sporting events in the future.
