Facebook Inc on Thursday launched a feature that allows users to upload photos with 360-degree views.

“Today we’re starting to roll out 360 photos worldwide across Facebook,” said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Apart from photos taken from 360-degree cameras, panoramic photos taken on a mobile phone can be converted to a 360-degree view on the newsfeed, the company said on Thursday.


The photos can also be seen in virtual reality compatible devices, Facebook said.

Facebook rolled out a similar service for video last September.
