With an aim to boost the photographic experience, Facebook has introduced an advanced feature called “360 Photos”, that allowed users to share immersive pictures viewed and observed from various angles.
The update is available on Facebook’s web, Android, and iOS platform, and can be created by documenting a panoramic view via your phone, an app or a 360-degree camera. After clicking an image, the user will be allowed to share the picture on FB, which will format and convert the file as relevant.
These images have a little compass icon marked on them, and you can watch and schedule the picture by swiping, tilting or clicking-and-dragging with a mouse (desktop).
Video Player Option:
Users with a Samsung Gear VR-compatible phone have the option to view these images with a “View in VR” option by controlling their Oculus-powered Gear VR headset through head movement.
After a long speculation, Facebook has finally launched the option, but what seems difficult is the process of developing these images. A dedicated and well-constructed camera is your ultimate solution! With 360 Photos, Facebook will change what has been a 3-second glance to a proper 20-second immersive image interaction.
You will be able to witness the new 360 Photos feature on web and mobile from today. Take a break and experience the luxury!
