Facebook has launched a new tool for iPhones called 3D Photos.

As pointed out by TechCrunch, Facebook has started rolling out 3D photos to add make-believe depth to shots taken using the iPhone's portrait mode.

Users will also be allowed by Facebook to see 3D photos in virtual reality via the "Oculus Go" browser by simply tapping, dragging and tilting their heads.

Social network Facebook introduced a feature to create and publish 3D pictures on your page. The new feature is now rolling out to everyone and it should be available to all users in the next few weeks. And now, a new promising feature is available, the 360 photos and 3D photos.

How do Facebook's 3D Photos work? 3D photos bring scenes to life with depth and movement.


Facebook will show you a preview of what the image will look like that you can check out before you actually share it. Facebook took this idea and ran with it. But with headset penetration still relatively low, it's the ability to display depth in the News Feed that will have the most significant impact on Facebook.

Whether it's a shot of your pet, your friends, or a attractive spot from your latest vacation, you just take a photo in Portrait mode using your compatible dual-lens smartphone, then share as a 3D photo on Facebook where you can scroll, pan and tilt to see the photo in realistic 3D-like you're looking through a window.

Basically, when users scroll onto Fido's pic, they'll be able to tilt and rotate their phone to view the pup from enough angles to make him appear to be coming out of the screen.

To 3D the was successful is recommended to avoid transparent objects such as plastic or glass, and choose contrasting backgrounds and details.
