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 …

Entire cast of 'Thor' puts on a budget live play for unsuspecting moviegoers

TwitterFacebook

Just for laughs, James Corden stuck the entire star-studded cast of Thor in a cardboard budget, school play version of the hit movie.

The Late Late Show host sprung the surprise on a bunch of (very lucky) unsuspecting moviegoers, interrupting the movie minutes into the beginning. Corden then brought out each member of the cast in their movie roles, starting with Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, before introducing Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, and Mark Ruffalo to the stunned audience.

While it’s incredible to see the Hollywood stars in the very budget version of their movie, it’s even more amazing that they didn’t seem to crack up while acting the whole thing out. Read more…

Instagram now allows you to add a pal to your live broadcast

Live Photos for all! Google Photos now lets you share and view your moving pictures over iOS, Android, and PC

A couple of years ago, Apple introduced its “Live Photos” — a feature, which has the phone’s camera record a short video that spans the time just before and just after you press the shutter button. Photos are viewable as normal, but force-pressing (or just long pressing if you don’t have 3D Touch) makes them “come alive” with the frames that were captured just before and just after. A neat little feature, great for capturing family moments with that fidgety little one, pets, fireworks, and other unpredictable stuff.

For quite a while, Live Photos have been an exclusive club. If you wanted …
