    Facebook announced Wednesday it is introducing a new video format in the News Feed, allowing users to choose the angle from which they want to watch them.

    The new 360 degree feature is currently being rolled out for Facebook on the Web and on Android. iOS users will get it "in the coming months."

    "You'll be able to hold up your phone and the 360 video will follow you as you turn, looking around, to experience things from all over the world like never before," Maher Saba, Facebook's engineering director for video said.
