Facebook is launching its own 360-degree video app on the Samsung Gear VR — the first official Facebook-brand VR social app to be released.
Practically, this isn’t a totally new option. Facebook 360-degree videos have been appearing in the Gear VR’s video app for quite some time, and you can already log in to Facebook and post reaction emoji.
Facebook also owns Oculus, which co-created the Gear VR. The company has put the Facebook 360 name on a spatial audio platform, and a 360-degree camera setup.
The app isn’t a full version of the social network. It will show you 360-degree photos and videos from your feed and timeline. This app called Facebook 360-degree video will enable you to post reactions to videos and share the videos themselves to Facebook, and more social features are supposed to be coming soon.
