Facebook has allowed users to upload and view 360 photos for a little over a year now, but the social media platform is also adding the ability to capture them, too. From today Facebook app users can create 360- degree photos without requiring a third party app or camera. Android and IOS version, both can experience this feature.
Since phones don’t have 360- degree cameras constructed in, the process resembles how you can generate paranormas in your phone’s camera app. To create 360- degree photos inside the Facebook app, scroll to the top of the News Feed and tap the “360 Photo” button. Then slowly spin around for a full turn, all while keeping the graphic centered in the middle. when it is finished, you can pick the “starting point” for the photo and publish it. Even you can set it as your cover photo.
The 360 photo capability is rolling out across both iOS and Android includes the ability to Zoom and tag friends. This is the first ever update to format support Facebook has made for Cover Photos since its introduction.
360 photos otherwise behave as regular pictures on Facebook, meaning you can post them to your Timeline, share them in albums alongside other standard images, and add them to groups. Capturing using the Facebook camera is designed to be easy as possible, too, with Facebook employing computer vision to automatically stitch the photo after you rotate your phone to capture it panorama-style.
