Share

Facebook first started converting iPhone panoramic photos into 360-degree ones in the main app back in 2016, but it's taken nearly two years to bring the feature to Messenger.

Facebook released a small update to Messenger this morning that makes the app a bit better for sharing photos and videos. 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.

Snapchat launches three incredible new face filters for iPhone X
Many expected the new iPhone X-exclusive face filters from Snapchat to be available on release day, November 3, 2017. According to The Verge , Snapchat's Lenses are created to reflect the surrounding light in a more realistic manner.

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". Facebook Messenger users can now send 360-degree videos through the ap as well as HD video up to 720p, but there's a caveat.

The new 360 degree and panoramic photos will help users capture intricate details such as landscapes, ocean view from a hotel room. The recipients can view the entire image by tapping and dragging it, moving their phone, or viewing it on Messenger.com by clicking and draggging.
