360-DE­GREE VIEW

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - FIRST TAKE -

Face­book has fi­nally rolled out 360-de­gree pho­tos. The so­cial net­work­ing gi­ant is now al­low­ing users to up­load and view 360-de­gree pho­tos right in their News Feed. Users have to cap­ture a panorama or 360-de­gree photo on their smart­phone by ei­ther us­ing the de­fault cam­era or any third party apps such as 360 photo app or 360 cam­era, and up­load it di­rectly to Face­book like a reg­u­lar im­age. Face­book will au­to­mat­i­cally con­vert it into an im­mer­sive 360 photo. The 360-de­gree pho­tos are easy to iden­tify in the News Feed as they have a com­pass icon on the right side of the photo. These pho­tos can be viewed by click­ing and drag­ging on the web, and tap­ping and drag­ging the photo or by mov­ing the de­vice on a smart­phone.
