Social Media giant Facebook has just announced a new way to go live on Facebook: Live 360.

Live 360 immerses viewers fully into the scene, letting them explore on their own and experience a new environment.

It is a combination of Facebook Live and 360 video transporting people into new experiences—right as they happen.

The launch will be happening on Tuesday, December 13 at 12pm PT / 3pm ET, with National Geographic, live from the Mars Desert Research Station facility in Utah. People around the world will be able to discover and explore this video on Facebook.

Live 360 video will be available to more Pages via the Live API in the coming months, and we look forward to rolling it out more broadly for all Pages and Profiles in 2017.
