Ahead of Google I/O 2016 on Wednesday, Google has today released a new update for their YouTube app on iOS, bringing support for Google’s Cardboard headset.

This finally allows users on iOS to check out the selection of virtual reality videos on YouTube, but only after a long wait of the support being available on Android since November, allowing users to watch 360-degree videos and pan around them with just your phone and a piece of cardboard.

To get going you simply need to update your YouTube app on your iPhone, then you just need to pick up a Google Cardboard certified device and pop your iPhone in it.

Here’s one from the recent SpaceX landing:
