How To Upload 3D Photos In Facebook On Android, iOS and PC?

Facebook has launched a feature where one can post 3D photos to the timeline, even with a single rear camera phone.

The social media gaint first introduced the 3D photo feature in October 2018 and was limited to smartphones having a dual or triple rear camera set up.

Previously, the tool relied on a depth map created by dual-camera phones and its own software tweaks which gave the 3D effect to the images.

The latest single-camera technique to create 3D images uses machine learning to transform a simple image into a 3D image. Facebook says that people can also use their front camera for capturing 3D selfies.

It appears that the feature will eventually roll out to a vast number of Android devices.
