The social media platform Facebook has rolled out the 3D photos in the News Feed and Virtual Reality. This feature will now let users create and view 3D images with lifelike dimensions, which include both movement and depth.
Users will have a number of options to experiment and adjust by creating multiple textures, layers, and contrasting set of colors to create 3D photos.
“Everyone will be able to see 3D photos in News Feed and VR today, while the ability to create and share 3D photos begins to roll out today,” the Facebook 360 team wrote in a blog post on Thursday.
The innovative technology behind 3D photos helps capture the distance between the subject in the background and foreground.
“Just take a photo in ‘Portrait’ mode using your compatible dual-lens smartphone, then share as a 3D photo on Facebook where you can scroll, pan and tilt to see the picture in realistic 3D,” the Facebook 360 team wrote in a blog post.
Users will also be allowed by Facebook to see 3D photos in virtual reality via the “Oculus Go” browser by simply tapping, dragging and tilting their heads. This will allow them to have the 3D experience in images. This feature is going to be made available for all users soon.
The blog-post further added, “We’re listening to feedback on this new format, and we continue rolling it out to everyone.”
The social media giant announced this latest feature in the month of May at its event, known as “F8”.
