Facebook announced last week that it’s expanding the expanded support of 3D Photos to Android and a number of iOS devices.
After expanding the rollout of 3D Photos and bringing 3D Photo creation to Stories, the web, and some Android devices in April, Facebook is now making the ability to post 3D Stories available on Android and several new iOS devices like the iPhone 7+, 8+, X, XS, and XS Max.
The list of supported Android devices includes Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Note 9, S9+, all S10 models, Galaxy Fold, Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, and Pixel 3 XL.
Users of these devices can now post 3D Photos – not just the 3D Photos they take with their dual device cameras – directly to Facebook.
Facebook 3D photos are relatively unknown to most Facebook users (only around 70 million 3D photos had been posted last year), but they add a fun and creative way to liven up Facebook posts. With more devices now supported, we may see many more starting to use the feature.
If you can’t see the feature, simply check that your Facebook app is updated. As Facebook 360 explains in the announcement:
“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.”
If your device doesn’t have a dual-lens depth camera, you will need to upload an original photo that has been “taken from a compatible dual-lens device.” However, Facebook explains that “another option is to do work in a workflow in a photo editing program and upload directly to your Feed.”
We explain how to do this here.
