The huge social networking site Facebook now expanded the idea with the wide launch of Live 360, a Virtual reality way for users to stream and consume live content.

Facebook says that "Your audience a chance to be in the moment through bothe place and time". However, you will need a proper camera hardware and bandwidth to execute the best thing as possible.

In the initial stage, the 360-degree live streaming was only available to specific publishers like National Geographic, but now the Facebook is rolling out a worldwide release of the tool for all to experience.

To use them, you'll need a compatible 360 camera such as the Samsung Gear 360(2017), Giroptic IO, Insta360 and Allie camera. And the professional option like the Z-CAM S1 and Nokia Ozo.

If your friends or family members can see the video from all direction and go live by rotating their smartphones or view it properly on a headset like the GearVR, Oculus Rift, or Google's DayDream.

Facebook said that they are working with other manufacturers to add more cameras facilities. The user can adjust their post privacy setting before going live. The broadcasters can see the comments directly from the camera interface after writing the live feedback.

Interestingly today Facebook announced Instagram with the same feature but the videos that always disappear to differentiate from replayable Facebook live clips and it is rolling out to everyone in the US.
