360 videos are created with a camera system that simultaneously records all 360 degrees of a scene. Viewers can pan and rotate a 360 video’s perspective to watch it from different angles.
When watching a 360 video on a computer, the viewing angle is changed by dragging with the mouse.
Make sure you’re using the latest version of your web browser (ex. Chrome, Firefox). 360 videos on Facebook aren’t viewable on Safari or Internet Explorer.
On iOS and Android mobile devices, the viewing angle of a 360 video is changed by dragging a finger across the screen or by navigating with the device. You can download popular apps like the Facebook app to try 360 videos that are published. If you’re using an iOS device, it should be an iPhone 4S or newer or an iPad 2 or newer. The iOS device also should be running iOS 7 or later. If you have an Android device, make sure you’re using Android 4.3 or later.
