The 360 degree is becoming quite popular currently, as many companies are working on this new Virtual Reality video. Currently the VR app of Facebook is in early stage of development, so there is no news about its release. The report also suggests that the app is being developed for both iOS and Android.
There are no clear details about this project, but this VR video project looks impressive. Facebook is trying to make its presence in Video streaming market soon. Also,the social giant has already announced that it is going to support 360 degree videos on its News Feed soon. This project sounds interesting, as Facebook owned Oculus is also set to launch its VR headset next year.
