So many creative possibilities with this announcement

Not sure how often consumers will use as most don't have the right equipment to capture these videos, but great for #brands that want to create unique content. Here's a cool example of Facebook 360 looking over New York.

@rrhoover You don't need any special equipment for the 360 photos on Facebook. Any panoramic pic will convert automatically.

@rrhoover Google Street App for iOS and Android both create 360 photospheres. However more time consuming than a one click 360 cam for sure.

@pfanis @rrhoover So long to do it though

@pfanis @rrhoover Also photosphere images. Results are pretty good too.

@rrhoover If you don't have a 360 camera, I suggest using these apps to create 360 photos: - iPhone or iPad camera panorama mode - Samsung Galaxy's panorama mode or surround shot mode (full 360) - Street View - Google Camera (Android) - Cardboard Camera (Android) - 360 Panorama by Occipital (iOS) Also, a list of sweet 360 cameras that we support: https://www.facebook.com/help/83...
@ahuang7 For some reason, the 360 photos and videos don't work in Chrome. I'm running the latest Chrome 51.0.2704.84. Works fine in Safari.

@ahuang7 thanks for the tips, Andy!

@rrhoover You can also just use your phone to shoot a pano and it will be rendered as an immersive photo! :)

@ahuang7 works for any android phone? Tried on my one plus, but couldnt get the 360.

@prateekkesharii update to the latest version of the app? It should work on Android OS version >= 4.4, device year class >= 2013

@ahuang7 app's updated. I am trying to upload a photosphere shot through a Google camera. However, it gets updated as a panorama. 😞

The one little feature that might get overlooked but is immensely cool is the little directional icon that moves as you pan around the image, indicating bearing. It's very useful: https://twitter.com/jasonsalas/s...

This is really impressive. It also renders Google Photosphere Images really nicely.

The way this works is actually amazing. I wouldn't mind if my whole news feed was filled up with this, though I would spend way too much time on Facebook again if it happened
