About 360 Videos
360 videos offer full 360 degree views that allow the person viewing to choose where to look. Unlike VR, however, there is no depth of field.
360 Videos can be viewed on laptops, computers, tablets and smartphones. Special equipment, such as a headset or goggles, is not needed for viewing 360 videos.
