In the past week, Facebook added the option to take 360 degree photos directly from the Facebook camera.
This option allows users to either take a full 360 degree photo, or a 180 degree “VR Style” photo. These photos can then be viewed using the screen or gyroscope of the device.
This writer has definitely been having fun using the feature, though be warned it seems to have some bugs yet, artifacts sometimes form when taking pictures due to swift movements.
Complete stillness is recommended and as always, stay safe.
