No more information is given but it’s expected that this will simply be an update to the app’s Universal Windows Platform app coding that will add support for the Xbox One in addition to the existing support for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile devices. Here’s the official app description:
Video 360 is the first mediaplayer 360° on Windows Store. The 3D Virtual Reality Headsets are supported (such as Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard etc.) Try this amazing experience to control the camera angle : a total immersion. Use this media player with Tubecast to enjoy Youtube videos 360 degrees (4K supported). Move the camera angle with Device sensors (Gyrometer, Accelerometer etc.), your fingers, keyboard, mouse, and XBOX Gamepad.
