Facebook Messenger Supports HD Videos and 360 Degree Images
Social networking major, Facebook announced on April 3, 2018, that the messenger app will support sharing of 360 degree images and HD videos from within the platform.
Facebook announced latest update to its Messenger for making it better platform for sharing images and videos. The app will be supporting 720p video in its latest version. However, the images cannot be captured from the app, as the app in camera has lower image resolution. Users can share already captured images from camera roll or news feed. Furthermore, Messenger can convert images that can be dragged around to view the whole thing. The 360 degree photos in Messenger will be available on iOS and Android platforms worldwide. HD quality videos are available in Australia, Belgium, Britain, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Hong Kong, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Singapore, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan and the US.
“Amazing 360 degree photos and panoramic photos will give you the ability to share more immersive views of your world from stunning landscapes, to that coveted ocean view from your hotel room, or the way your new apartment looks the world is your oyster now in Messenger,” mentioned Sean Kelly and Hagen Green, Product Managers at Messenger Facebook in their blog post. “On the heels of our high resolution photo news introduced last fall, we’re also launching the ability to share HD quality videos straight to Messenger,” the duo added.
For 360 degree photos in Messenger, simply set the phone camera to panorama and snap a photo or capture a 360 degree photo using a 360 photo app or camera and share it in Messenger just like a normal photo. In 2018, Facebook enabled users to share photos, videos, stickers, and GIFs in Messenger. To access this new update, users need to update the Messenger app to the latest version.
