It will show 360-degree photos and videos from your feed and timeline, as well as a more general feed of media companies and selected individuals, and anything you've saved from the News Feed on desktop or mobile.
On Wednesday, the company made good on those hints by releasing Facebook 360, a standalone app for the Samsung Gear VR.
Vimeo admits that it took time for it to bring support for 360-degree videos to its platform. Another stores saved content, making it easier to find videos you see on your smartphone for goggle viewing later.
It allows uploads up to 8K, so you should have plenty of resolution to work with, and a stereoscopic (3D) option allows for a full-fledged VR experience.
Facebook 360, available to download from the Oculus app, is now only available on Samsung Gear VR and Gear VR-compatible headsets. From there, you'll be presented with a grid of content to view, separated into different feeds. Heading into SXSW, Vimeo has announced it will now support the distribution and monetization of 360 video, with two badass women at the helm - Anjali Sud and Sara Poorsattar.
In light of the latest developments in Vimeo's video-sharing website, the company is launching a "360 Video School", which basically refers to a series of online tutorials creators can check out if they want to learn how to produce, shoot and edit 360 content. Vimeo is offering these tutorials, which range from basic to the most in-depth, to everyone for free. "We believe Vimeo creators are the missing piece to taking 360 video from nascent to mainstream".
"Ever since 360 photos and videos came to Facebook, people around the world have embraced these new formats", Facebook product director Brent Ayrey and software engineer Christopher Wong wrote.
