Facebook's 360-degree videos arrive on iPhone and iPad

Facebook has begun rolling out 360-degree videos for users on iPhone and iPad, following their initial rollout on Android back in September.

These videos allow you to move your device around to change your view of a particular scene. So, if a video is shot in a car's passenger seat for instance, point the phone next to you to see the driver, or behind you to see other passengers. Look up to see the sky, all while the video plays. You can also drag your finger around the screen to change angles.

Facebook is also opening these videos up to advertisers, including AT&T, Corona, and the Walt Disney Company. Videos shot in 360 degrees will be marked as such in your news feed, and you need to do is hit play.

You might find that 360-degree video is not yet available in your feed, and you might need to give them some time before they start showing up.
