Facebook adding 360-degree photos to your News Feed

Facebook is rolling out 360-degree photos, so you’ll be able to fully appreciate panoramic photos taken on a phone or a 360-degree camera.

If you don’t happen to have a virtual reality headset to hand, you can tilt your phone to look around. On a Samsung phone, when you’re viewing a 360 photo, there will be a button in the top left hand corner of the screen that says “View in VR.”

It seems strange that it’s taken so long for still pictures to catch up, as 360-degree videos have been supported by Facebook for some time. In fact, Oculus’ announcement mentioned that nearly 80% of people who use the Gear VR watch video content on a given day.

Oculus also highlighted the release of new content for Gear VR, including a three-part series called Nomads and Deadliest Catch VR.
