Filed in Blog by on April 21, 2020 0 Comments

Rejoice Android users! Facebook has finally rolled out an exciting feature for you (well… for many of you at least). Social media expert Ahmed Ghanem and consultant Matt Navarra shared the news about the newest addition to Facebook Android.

Navarra tweeted about the social media giant rolling out 3D photos to select Android devices. He also attached a screenshot of Facebook 360’s official announcement regarding the feature’s arrival on Android.

Facebook 360 mentioned in its post that ever since the introduction of 3D photos last year and the additional features with 3D photo creation from web, users have enjoyed and made full use of these and this is why, now is the time to expand support for 3D photos so they can be incorporated into Android devices as well.

These select Android devices include Samsung Galaxy S9+, all S10 models, Note 8, Note 9, Galaxy Fold as well as Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. For iOS, the phones with support for 3D photos are iPhone 7+, 8+. X, XS, XR, XS Max.

In case you own any of the above mentioned devices, it is best to update your Facebook app to the latest version and then access 3D Photos from the menu that appears after you choose to create a post. As it can be seen from one of Navarra’s shared screenshots, the “3D Photo” option can be seen along with other post creation options such as Photo/Video, Camera and Feeling/Activity/Sticker etc.

“If you cannot see the feature and your device is listed as supported, please try making sure you are on the latest version of the Facebook app, and please make sure in your settings you have allowed access to view your photos.”, explained Facebook 360 team.

Interestingly, the feature was rolled out a few days after Snap Inc. announced its new Spectacles sunglasses, allowing users to capture 3D photos and videos. Whether the feature reaches the same heights of success on Android that it has on web and iOS will be determined in due time. For now, it is a good time for Android users to enjoy sharing 3D photos on their Facebook timelines.
