Social media company Facebook has rolled out another update for its users, allowing them to capture 360-degree photos inside its app. The company last year gave users permission to upload 360-degree photos right in the News Feed, after capturing photos from smartphone camera or a third-party app— meaning they were not given access to capture the photo from inside the app. However, with this new update users have been given access to take 360-degree photos while using Facebook Camera.

The new update is shipped for both Android and iOS user. However, the update will gradually come to users. The process to capture the 360-degree photo is simple. Just go to the News Feed and hit 360 photo icon after that “Place yourself at the center and spin around while using ‘360 Photo’ through the Facebook app to take a full 360-degree panorama.”

After you have captured the photo you can share it on your timeline with a caption and can also make it your cover photo. Click here to read more about 360 photos.

Apart from this recent update, the company has also launched a dedicated Safety check tab for its app and desktop version. Previously the Safety Check option was only activated by the company whenever a calamity occurs. Moreover, Facebook has allowed publishers and media houses to display their logos alongside headlines in the trending and search sections in a bid to attract more content producers on its platform.
