Facebook has been a big supporter of 360 content for a while now, but there’s been no way to create any 360 content from within the Facebook app itself – until today.
Facebook’s latest update to its mobile app allows users to create full 360 photos from within the app itself (no video support yet). The update includes the ability to zoom and tag friends.
Additionally, users can now use 360 photos created in-app as cover photos on their profile page. TechCrunch remarks that this is the “first ever update to format support Facebook has made for Cover Photos since its introduction.”
Watch the video below for a brief demo of the function.
