Facebook has announced that its 360-degree feature is available to all users of its social network around the world after it began testing at the end of last year.
“Today we are delighted to make Live 360 universally available for all pages and profiles,” the US technology giant said on its blog. “Anyone with a 360-degree camera can now broadcast live on Facebook,” she said.
Facebook, which has the world’s largest social networking network, announced onDecember 12 that it has launched a new feature that integrates 360-degree direct and 360-degree video and video services as part of its focus on enhancing its video capabilities.
The company, which has more than 1.86 billion active users per month, began testing Live 360 with National Geographic through its broadcast from the Mars Desert Research Station facility in Utah.
The new feature supports a number of 360-degree cameras, including the 2017 version of Samsung’s 360 Gear, Giroptic IO, Insta360, Allie Camera, Z CAM S1, Nokia OZO.
Since direct broadcast services such as Mirkat, which was forced to withdraw from the market, were widely popular and then Facebook acquired, Facebook began to realize the importance of this market, forcing it to invest substantial resources on Facebook Live and benefit from its broad audience.
