FACEBOOK ENABLES LIVE 360 FOR EVERYONE
If you have a 360 camera, chances are you can now stream live on your Facebook profile and pages. With this new global capability, Facebook users can start broadcasting live in 360 degrees “in seconds” with a wider range of cameras including popular consumer products like Samsung Gear 360, Giroptic IO, and ALLie Camera. In addition, the social media giant has also introduced spatial audio support, that is 360-degree sound particularly effective when using a VR headset. It is for this reason that many understand Facebook’s newest 360-enhanced live streaming to be another definitive step in Facebook’s march toward virtual reality integration as well.
