Facebook adds 360-degree video to News Feed.

Facebook today began rolling out 360-degree viewing at the leading social network, letting people change their perspectives in specially created videos.Maher Saba, Facebook’s engineering director for video, called the addition a response to users enjoying “more immersive content in their News Feeds.” “In the future, imagine watching 360 videos of a friend’s vacation to a small village in France or a festival in Brazil — you’ll be able to look around and experience it as if you were there,” he wrote in a statement. The immersive new feature being added to News Feed was being rolled out to Web browser and mobile devices powered by Google-backed Android operating systems. On the web you can do this by dragging around the video with your cursor, and on mobile devices you do it by dragging with your finger — or even just by turning your device.

A number of companies are already sharing exclusive content in this new format, including Disney and Lucasfilm, which released an interactive video preview of the upcoming movie “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Apparently, if you want to examine the rubble of Afghanistan’s bombed Darul Aman Palace – as shown by VICE correspondent Ben Anderson – you now can. The interactive feature is a product of Oculus, the virtual reality firm Facebook acquired for $2 billion last March, reports The Christian Science Monitor. Imagine sharing not just moments with your friends online, but entire experiences and adventures.” Facebook is currently rolling out its new video format on its web and Android versions.
