Wednesday, Facebook announced 360 Video, a new feature where users can explore videos in a virtual reality-like experience directly in their News Feed by panning around the scenery while playing a video through hand gestures and tilts of the screen. Available today on desktops and Android devices (with iOS functions coming soon), you鈥檒l be able to feel fully immersed in media videos as well as your friend鈥檚 visual uploads. It鈥檚 kinda like taking the fear out of FOMO ;)

Some brands that have already shared their own 360-degree vids are Disney with a Star Wars short film, some BTS footage from SNL鈥榮 40th Anniversary Special, motocross riding from a GoPro POV, a LeBron James鈥 training session and more. Check 鈥檈m all out on the 360 Video Facebook page to get inspo for your own 360 vid ideas.
