Facebook Messenger now supports 360-degree photos and HD videos

Facebook Messenger now supports 360-degree photos and HD videos

Same goes for 720p videos, except you can also send them straight from your News Feed or from another Messenger conversation. Earlier this year, Facebook made it possible for users to share photos, videos, stickers and GIFs in Messenger.

Giving its Messenger a more visual appeal, Facebook on Tuesday said that users can now send 360 degree photos and HD videos from within the platform. The feature isn't only for panorama pictures, so if you have a fancy phone or camera that can take "native" 360-degree photos, you'll be able to make use of those, too.

Facebook Messenger now lets you share 360-degree photos with your contacts.

To try out these new features, just be sure to update your Messenger app to the latest version. Then share it in Messenger as you would a normal photo.

To share HD videos, you can either share a video saved on your phone, from your newsfeed, or even share a video from one message thread to another.

The 360 degree photos in Messenger are available globally on both iOS and Android platforms.

Videos shared via Messenger have an HD or SD marker on the lower right side; you can change the quality by clicking that marker while in full-screen mode.

Support for 360-degree images is available worldwide, AndroidCentral reports, while HD videos are now rolling out in 18 regions: the U.S., UK, Canada, Australia, Belgium, France, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Romania, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Sweden, and Switzerland.
