Facebook shows off 360 degree video on iPhone

Facebook has announced that its 360-degree video feature is now available on iPhones and other iOS devices, allowing users to view certain videos from any angle by moving the camera around. The social network first introduced the feature for PCs and Android smartphones in September 2015.

Users can touch the screen and drag to move the pictures left, right, up or down. They can also hold up their phone and, as they turn, the 360-degree video will follow them, creating an immersive "virtual reality" type experience.

"This opens new ways of sharing experiences. We think people will share a lot more 360 content in the future", said Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

As well as GoPro, several other high-profile partners including Discovery, Vice, and others have all released their own 360 videos.

Here’s Facebook’s first 360 video, introduced by Mark Zuckerberg himself. The video is from North Korea’s festive parade.
