Users now can post reactions to videos and share the videos themselves to Facebook, and more social features are supposed to be coming soon.
However, this isn't a totally new option. Facebook 360-degree videos have been appearing in the Gear VR's video app for quite some time, and you can already log into Facebook and post reaction emoji .
Oculus which was co-created with the Gear VR is also owned by Facebook. The company has put the Facebook 360 name on a spatial audio platform , and a 360-degree camera setup .
This is a step toward the future which CEO Mark Zuckerberg sketched out at the last Oculus Connect conference, where he revealed a virtual world that blended VR telepresence with traditional video.
But until now, Facebook hadn't released anything that could be taken as a version of Facebook for virtual reality.
