Big news, YouTubers: 360-degree video support has arrived.

First announced in January, the new feature is available today — if you have an Android device or use Google’s Chrome browser on the desktop. Google teases that it’s “working to bring this to iPhone, iPad and other devices soon.” Oh, the suspense.

The launch arrives at the perfect time in the video world, as both 360-degree cameras and virtual reality devices (like Google Cardboard) become more affordable (note: still not cheap) than ever before.
