You Can Now Take 360-Degree Photos in Facebook

Via Engadget, Facebook has announced you can now take 360-degree photos from within their mobile apps for iOS and Android. The feature is beginning to roll out to all users, however we have yet to get it on any of our devices here in the office.

The feature is essentially like the Photo Sphere feature in Google’s Pixel camera app. By tapping the “360 Photo” option at the top of your News Feed, Facebook will ask you to follow the path presented in a camera interface to create a 360-degree photograph which you can view like you would a photo taken with a 360-degree camera. That’s another thing: you don’t need any extra hardware or software to perform this action. Just use your phone’s built-in camera to take the picture.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like video is supported right now, but it may be in the future. We’ll let you know if it is.
