Facebook Messenger Adds 360-Degree Photo Sharing

Facebook Messenger Adds 360-Degree Photo Sharing

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.

You can send and receive 360-degree photos in Messenger wherever you are in the world and whether you're on iOS or Android. Facebook supports 360-degree images and videos in the main app, however this new update allows you to capture 360-degree picture with your 360-degree camera for sending it to others.

A spokeswoman told Bloomberg: "For example, on Messenger, when you send a photo, our automated systems scan it using photo matching technology to detect known child exploitation imagery or when you send a link, we scan it for malware or viruses".

Facebook is rolling out new features today to what are arguably its most important products: the News Feed and Messenger.

Facebook Inc scans the links and images that people send each other on Facebook Messenger, and reads chats when they're flagged to moderators, making sure the content abides by the company's rules. Then share it in Messenger as one would with a normal photo. The company says Facebook Messenger values users' privacy, but it does monitor certain types of content to keep things clean.

Similarly, HD videos will need to be first captured from the phone, or re-shared from the Facebook Newsfeed or other messages. You will see a compass icon on the right-hand side of a panoramic photo.

HD quality videos are available in Australia, Belgium, Britain, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Hong Kong, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Singapore, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan and the USA on iOS and Android.

After the launch of the HD photo function past year, Facebook is now allowing users to do the same with videos.

Quality of the video can be changed by using the marker on the lower right side when in full screen mode. Facebook was famously used as a platform for Russian propaganda during the 2016 election-that was several scandals ago, so you might not think about it much anymore.
