Today, we’re excited to share the launch of the Facebook 360 app on Gear VR—a brand-new, immersive way to enjoy the latest and greatest 360 videos on Facebook.
People have shared more than 25 million 360 photos and more than 1 million 360 videos on Facebook, and now you have a dedicated place to check them out on Gear VR. Watch 360 content you and your friends have shared to Facebook, or enjoy 360 videos you saved from your Facebook News Feed to watch later in VR. You can also explore some of the most popular 360 content from across Facebook, including from Pages and people you follow.
Whether you want to visit exotic locales across the globe, go backstage with your favorite band, or be on the ground for breaking news, the magical combination of Gear VR and Facebook 360 lets you be anywhere in the world, anytime. We can’t wait to see how people use the app to connect and share in an exciting new way.
