Beginning today, everyone can create, view and share Facebook 3D photos in the News Feed. When portrait mode photos are uploaded, Facebook will respond to movements of a mobile device and give a sense of depth to the image. With 3D photos, when you post a portrait-style image, Facebook is able to separate the subject of the photo from the background and create a more layered look.

Now you can post 3D photos on your Facebook news feed. Facebook will turn your selected picture into a pseudo-3D image.

Choose the photo, select the Share button and Facebook will take care of the rest! Although these images are visible on phones, they can also be viewed on Oculus Go VR headset's web browser or Firefox on the Oculus Rift.

The company clarified in a statement that this feature will only be available in portrait mode for compatible iPhone models.

"Today we're starting to roll out 3D photos, a new way to share your memories and moments in time with a fun, lifelike dimension in both News Feed and VR", Facebook announced in a blog post.

Here's how to create a 3D Photo in Facebook using an iPhone. This feature is going to be made available for all users soon.

How do Facebook's 3D Photos work?

The feature is possible thanks to the dual-camera setups that have become common on flagship smartphones. And when you tilt or scroll your device, the image change its perspectives. But instead, the photos will have a depth that will let you see things from different angles and tilts within the photo. Try to avoid transparent objects like clear plastic or glass, as they aren't always accurately captured by depth sensors. Currently, this option is available for users of iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus, X, or XS.
