What is a 360 video? A 360 video is created with a 360° camera system that simultaneously records all 360 degrees of a scene. Viewers can pan and rotate a 360 video’s perspective to watch it from different angles. On desktop, the viewing angle is changed by dragging with a mouse. On mobile devices, the viewing angle is changed by dragging a finger across the device’s screen or by turning the device on its side to navigate. 360 videos are larger than normal video files and may take longer to download because of their size. 4K or at least 1080p are recommended.
