WordPress.com Now Supports Some Virtual Reality (VR) And 360° Content

Today the WordPress.com News Blog had a post called Introducing VR And 360° Content For All WordPress.com Sites.

In that post WordPress.com announced that WordPress.com now supports some virtual reality (VR) content being directly uploaded to WordPress.com like some 360-degree video and photographs/pictures, and panorama images.

There is a VR viewer that will automatically load this content in browsers that support it when someone clicks on the virtual reality content that you upload to WordPress.com.

Here is the WordPress.com Support page that shows you the steps on embedding virtual reality (VR) and 360° content on your WordPress.com blog:

This is a surprising announcement, it seems that WordPress.com is trying to be an early adopter of this technology, which is good in my opinion.

Now I wonder if some future themes will get virtual reality support. 😀
