Roll up your sleeves and get ready for some phone tilting, mouse clicking immersive content. Facebook is bringing the future to your News Feed with 360-degree videos.
The company announced Wednesday that its platform for web and Android users will now support the videos that allow users to view a scene from any angle.
Videos are created using a special set of cameras that capture the scene from every angle at the same time.
"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," Facebook said in its announcement.
The posts range from speeding along an alien planet..
..to being on the ground in Afghanistan..
..to swimming with sharks.
Of course, if you want to share an immersive experience of you at a family barbecue or going out for a walk you'll need a somewhat expensive 360 camera. Cameras like the V.360 and Bublcam start at $450.
Support for users on the iOS platform will come in the following months, Facebook said.
