Facebook has introduced the 360 degree videos for its mobile app. In an era of smart technology and virtual reality, 360 degree panoramic videos are on the rise. The videos are being referred as 360 videos. People love to see the world around them and internet acts as a huge eye opener to us. We can see numerous places, events through the internet that were otherwise not possible physically. If the video experience can be made more more realistic and immersive, then nothing can be better than that.
Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook announced the launch of the 360 video service for the mobile app version of Facebook. The 360 videos bring a completely new and exciting experience as you can see an entire 360 degree of the video by moving the camera to any direction. So you will feel as being a part of the video you are watching.
Zuckerberg posted in Facebook:
We just started launching 360 video on mobile.
360 video is a completely new experience because you can move the camera around. This opens new ways of sharing experiences and makes you feel like you’re part of what you’re watching. It’s a step towards even more immersive experiences.
This video was shot in North Korea by ABC News — and panning around lets you experience the kind of thing most people will never see in their lives.
We think people will share a lot more 360 content in the future, especially as technology makes it easier to record it themselves. We’re excited you can discover them on Facebook.
