Essential updates its 360 Camera module with Facebook Live 360 streaming support

Essential announced not long ago that customers who bought its 360 Camera module will be able to broadcast Facebook Live 360 directly from their Essential Phone. Considering the issues the Essential Phone’s camera has, that’s probably the last thing that those who purchased it would want.

Still, if you’re into 360-degree content and absolutely must capture your adventures using this format, you can do it if you have an Essential Phone and the 360 Camera released by the US-based company.

The latest 360 Camera update will now enable you to start a Live 360 …

Deal: Samsung Gear 360 (first-generation) costs less than $100 on Amazon

The original Samsung Gear 360 camera has been discounted quite a few times since its launch on the market. However, I can’t remember a promotion that would offer Samsung 360-degree camera for less than $100.

According to Amazon, the first-generation Samsung Gear 360 is now available for purchase for just $99.99, which means you’ll be saving no less than $250 when you buy the camera.

Although Amazon claims the Samsung Gear 360 sells for $349.99, few retailers in the United States still offer the camera for such a high price. Still, getting it for less …

Motorola decides to roll out Android Wear 2.0 for Moto 360 Sport

Motorola has just announced that one of its smartwatches, the Moto 360 Sport will finally receive the long-awaited Android Wear 2.0 update. After updating the second-generation Moto 360 back in May, Motorola backtrack on its plans to leave the Moto 360 Sport without the update.

Unfortunately, the Moto 360 Sport did not sell well at all, which forced Motorola to pull the smartwatch from Google Play Store. That’s the main reason Android Wear 2.0 was delayed until now, and probably why Motorola was considering not offering the update at all.

Today, the US-based …

Motorola just announced a brand new Moto Mod alongside its Moto Z2 Force Edition flagship. The latest member of the snap-on accessory line is a 360 camera, capable of recording video in 4K.

So, how does it differentiate itself from competitors like Samsung’s Gear 360?
