"Advertisers who dismissed 360 as a gimmick should give it another look."

"Looking back, in 2015, YouTube launched what seemed to be a half-step between traditional video and virtual reality," recalls Matt Lopez in the article "Why 2017 is the Year of 360 Video."

Advertisers who dismissed 360 as a gimmick should give it another look because 360 offers better engagement than standard video ads and is a gateway for VR, which is on its way to going mainstream."
