Facebook 360 Debuts On Samsung Gear VR

"Saved" gives you an opportunity to experience 360 content you may have seen on the web in a more immersive in-headset experience, while "Timeline" lets you check out your own 360 photos and videos all in one place. It's Facebook's brand-new, purpose-built app for browsing 360-degree photos and video, and it's launching today on Samsung's Gear VR. Vimeo's creator community is known for pioneering new video formats and pushing the boundaries of storytelling. However, the video-sharing company insisted that it's not about being the first to launch support for 360 videos, but it's about doing this right for its users.

In the online video world, all the cool kids are making 360-degree videos, so naturally, the platform known for its cool, artsy videos has made a decision to get in on the action. The debut also includes a 360-degree video marketplace where viewers can browse videos published by Vimeo creators, through Vimeo On Demand, and purchase or rent the videos.

Though it's late to the 360 party, Vimeo is different from competitors in that it's focus has always been on filmmakers and videographers over viral content, and it tends to provide some of the best video quality on the web. And, of course, you can access your own 360-degree content to watch within the VR headset.

For more on 360 video on Vimeo, check out the company's blog post at the source link below. Vimeo has launched Vimeo 360, a new hub that will spotlight 360-degree filmmaking while offering numerous creative resources to its users. 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. "We believe Vimeo creators are the missing piece to taking 360 video from nascent to mainstream".
