Essential's 360 Camera can now livestream 360-degree videos to Facebook

Andy Rubin's Essential Phone is not only bezel-less, but also has a semi-modular design, like Motorola's Moto Z line, that lets you attach modular accessory to the back on the phone via two-pin connection system to give it extra functionality. However, for the time being, Essential is only offering a 360 degree camera.

That being said, Essential has updated the 360 Camera module for the Essential Phone, giving it the ability of live streaming immersive 360-degree videos to Facebook Live.

Essential also published a blog post, explaining how to live stream 360-degree video to Facebook Live. The steps are mentioned below:
  1. Connect your Essential 360 Camera to your Essential Phone
  2. When the 360 Camera app opens, tap 360° Live or swipe left to select it
  3. Tap the red "Live" camera icon
  4. Log in to your Facebook account, then allow permissions for the Camera
  5. Tap Only me and select who you want to see your stream: Friends, Friends of Friends, Public, or keep it to just you
  6. Add an optional description, so people know a bit more about what they’re watching
  7. Tap the red "Live" camera icon again to start your stream. When you want to stop your live stream, just tap the square Stop button
Apart from Facebook Live, Essential in the blog spot also explained how to upload 360-degree content,captured on Essential's 360-degree camera to YouTube, Vimeo and Instagram. It also added that it will soon add support for live streaming 360-degree videos to Twitter via Periscope.
