After flagging an expanded Android roll-out back in April, Facebook has this week officially announced that its 3D photos option will be made available on Android devices, and an expanded set of iOS smartphones.
Facebook’s 3D photos, which add depth to still images by using the dual camera capacity of most modern smartphones, provide another creative option for your Facebook posts. And Facebook’s more advanced visual formats are already proving popular – Facebook reported last year that more than 70 million 360 photos had been uploaded to The Social Network.
Facebook has continued to increase its 3D photo options over time, adding desktop support, the capacity to post 3D photos in Stories, on Messenger, and now, via Android devices.
As you can see in the top image, if you want to post a 3D photo, you can select the ‘3D Photo’ option from your list of update tools.
It’s another option to consider – and definitely, the 3D posts can help to ‘strop the scroll’ and grab people’s attention in feeds.
