Watch Google’s festive interactive video

Google has brought its interactive videos, ‘Spotlight Stories’, to YouTube with a festive thriller called Special Delivery.

The Christmas mystery was made in collaboration with Aardman Animations, makers of Wallace and Gromit, and allows you to use your Android phone to explore a 360 degree interactive scene.

Web and iOS users can also enjoy a slightly less interactive version of the video, where a caretaker tries to solve the mystery of a stranger on the roof, delivering presents to people in his building.

The video uses sensors in your phone to allow you to move the handset to investigate the scene.

If you look away from the main character, the story will pause, allowing you to unlock other side-stories only available by exploring the scene.

Spotlight Stories started as a project in partnership with Motorola where 360 degree animated adventures were made avaialble through a dedicated app.

Special Delivery marks the first appearance of Spotlight Stories on YouTube, where you have the option to use Cardboard to help solve the mystery.
