On Wednesday, Facebook introduced 360-degree videos to its newsfeed platform, letting users experience video by looking around in every direction.
How does it work? At a desktop computer, use your mouse to “grab” the screen and pan in any direction. On a smartphone, you’re supposed to tilt the device to look around.
But right now, this feature works best on a desktop computer. If you try it on a smartphone, you’ll probably get this message: “360 Video is not yet available for this device.” Facebook says 360 Video works on Android, but it didn’t work during a quick test by CNNMoney. Facebook said it expects to roll out this feature to iOS in the coming months.
