Facebook introduces 3D photos in News Feed and Virtual Reality

Facebook

Facebook announced today that it has begun rolling out 3D photos.

With 3D photos, you'll be able to rotate your phone around or swipe with your finger to get a better view of the subject and scene.

Facebook users can tilt, pan, and scroll in the photos, viewing them with Oculus Browser and Oculus Rift, as well as in the News Feed.

Everyone can now view 3D photos and the ability to create them will open to everyone in the coming weeks.

What is a Facebook 3D Photo?

Basically, Facebook takes advantage of the portrait mode to display your 2D photos in 3D, using the depth information between the subject in the foreground and the background. Your feed is about to get all weird, as Facebook rolls out a "3D photo" feature that adds depth (and movement) to photos. And no, your Samsung Galaxy Note 9 or LG V35 ThinQ will not work either, despite also offering dual cameras.

Unfortunately the new feature just available for iPhones right now and there is no word on when it will arrive on Android devices.

You'll get more of the 3D effect when your photo's subject has contrasting colors - for example, someone wearing a blue shirt standing in front of a blue wall won't pop as much as someone wearing a different color in front of the same wall.

All you need to create is a new Facebook post through the official Facebook app, tap on the three dots for more options, and choose the 3D Photo option. You are all set to create a Facebook 3D Photo. There's no mention of support for Google's dual-pixel Portrait mode photos captured with the Pixel line.
