Facebook Messenger introduces 360-degree photos and HD quality videos

Above 360 Degree Above 360 Degree

360-degree photos and panoramic photos give you the ability to share more immersive views of the world - be it stunning landscapes, ocean view from your hotel room, or the way your new apartment looks - the world gets better to share.

The update follows another that rolled out last fall, allowing users to share high-resolution photos through Messenger - something that Facebook said was the result of its significant investments in helping people "communicate visually".

When it comes to photo features on mobile apps, Facebook remains ahead of the pack with the unveiling of a new 360-degree photo and HD video feature in its Messenger app. For 360-degree photos, simply set the phone camera to panorama and snap a photo or capture a 360-degree photo using a 360-photo app or camera.

The company told Bloomberg that Messenger conversations were private, but it scanned them to prevent abuse. Again, you'll have to capture these photos outside of Messenger, but you'll now be able to share them inside the app. Messenger will then convert them into images that can be dragged around to view the whole thing.

While Facebook is rolling out these new photo features, social media rivals Twitter and Instagram do not match up.

360-degree photos are also now shareable here.

As far as HD videos go, you can now send 720p clips from your camera roll and newsfeed.

The 360 degree photo expansion is now available through Messenger globally. You will see a compass icon on the right-hand side of a panoramic photo.

The update also allows you to send HD videos. You can also change the quality of the video you're viewing on the lower right side when you're on full screen mode.
