Through the feature, you can tilt your phone and feel like you’re in the picture. All you need to do is to use the panorama feature of your phone or use a 360 camera app.

Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg announced the feature on his Facebook page. According to him:

Today we’re starting to roll out 360 photos worldwide across Facebook.

These are similar to 360 videos — you can tilt your phone and feel like you’re actually there. You can also check them out in virtual reality for a fully immersive experience.

The big difference with 360 photos is you can take them with your phone. Just take a panorama or use a 360 camera app, then post it to Facebook and we’ll take care of the rest.

The photo used above is of Manhattan taken from the top of One World Trade Center by Michael Franz and Jonathan D. Woods for TIME magazine.
