You will have an option ‘Watch in VR’ at the top to click on and view on your VR headset. The video can play in any view kind, normal clip, 180-degree, or full 360. For this to be processed, you need your VR headset plugged into your Linux PC, macOS, or Windows.

Starting today, you can use this solution via Opera’s Developer 49 build. It is as simple as – clicking and watching on the headset. And truly, so! The best part is, that you don’t even need to download the video.
