Google is adding a shared rooms feature to YouTube VR as part of an update to the app as well as an update to the Daydream platform in general. The hardware shuts out any view or sound of people physically near you, not many people own headsets yet, and interactions inside virtual settings are still limited.

The notification will only be put on speakers when you ask Google Home what is it. Google Home is also going to feature a free calling capability.

Have you ever wanted to come face-to-face with YouTube commenters? Such as, information the 2.0 software update for Google Daydream, codenamed Euphrates.

The YouTube TV app is getting support for live 360-degree videos this summer!

I could see this being really fun for watching new movie trailers, like a new Star Wars drop. Since comments won't be the form of communication for such an experience, each person's avatar will appear to be speaking whenever any of the users engage each other with the voice chat functionality.

If no one's nearby, you can take a screenshot or record a video of what you see, like a level of a VR game.

The firm is also giving YouTube VR an overhaul to enable multiple users to "share the experience in the same virtual space". Google does plan to include safety features such as the ability to leave a group or block someone at anytime.

There's also a VR version of the Chrome browser coming with Eupherates. Google has announced that Google Home will be introducing a lot of new features very soon.
