Internet users interested in 360-degree video content should be pleased to learn that Facebook now supports live streaming in the exciting new media format. According to Techcrunch, users just need to have the equipment necessary to capture 360-degree videos on their device. (There are a number of cameras available for mobile phones and laptops.) Facebook allows its users to stream up to four hours of 1080p, 30fps content in 360-degrees. Given the fact that other players in the space such as Periscope and YouTube already support 360-degree live streaming, it is not surprising that Facebook, parent company of Oculus VR, has finally jumped on board.
Insta360, a company which offers a number of 360-degree cameras for various devices, has published a tutorial video on how to use this new Facebook feature for those interested.
