After being shared on Facebook, the users can view this 3D photo in desktop or mobile News Feed; one can also view it in Firefox on Oculus Rift and Oculus Go's browser.
"Everyone will be able to see 3D photos in News Feed and VR today, while the ability to create and share 3D photos begins to roll out today", the Facebook 360 team wrote in a blog-post on Thursday. "With technology that captures the distance between the subject in the foreground and the background, 3D photos bring scenes to life with depth and movement", it said.
Your 3D photos will be viewable by anyone on Facebook, not just those with specific devices.
Facebook recommends you keep your subject three to four feet away and have things in the foreground and background.
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. There's no mention of support for Google's dual-pixel Portrait mode photos captured with the Pixel line.
To use Facebook's 3D Photos, you'll need to have the iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. On your news feed, you can scroll, pan and tilt to see the photos in 3D. With the help of this, a user could take a normal 2D picture and turn it into a 3D photo to make a Facebook post more lively. The feature should be available to everyone "in the coming weeks".
