Social media giant Facebook has recently rolled out the feature of 360-degree video that will enable users to pan around in every direction during playback.
This initiative by Facebook will allow the users to have a much better video viewing experience thus, letting people change their perspectives in specially created videos in the Facebook News Feed.
Video Engineering Director Maher Saba stated in a blog post:
“We’ve seen that people enjoy more immersive content in their News Feeds. We’re excited to take it a step further with 360-degree video.”
Disney and Lucasfilm will debut a 360-degree video focused on its upcoming film “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Saba said.
Will Cathcart, representative from The Verge quoted:
“Here what we’ve done is look at all the really cool 360-degree video content people are creating and think through, what’s the right way to bring that experience to News Feed.”
In desktop computer browsers, changing angles can be done using on-screen cursors. On mobile devices, shifting perspectives can be done by dragging fingers or just turning handsets, according to Saba.
“You’ll be able to hold up your phone and the 360-degree video will follow you as you turn, looking around, to experience things from all over the world like never before,” added Saba.
This additional new feature being added to News Feed was being rolled out to web browser and mobile devices powered by Google-backed Android operating systems. Facebook planned to get it onto hardware powered by Apple iOS software in the coming months. New online casino platforms are pretty popular nowadays.
