Download the mode “Surround shot”

Take the 360 degree photo
Just follow the guidelines that shows up on your camera app screen whilst you stand in an enviroment suitable for a 360 degree shot. Preferably a place with objects far away. Don’t stand in a toilet, in other words.
Transfer photo to correct folder
After taking the photo, just transfer it from the images folder on your Android – to the folder “360Photos” in the “Oculus” folder.
View your photo in 360 degree
Then, launch your Samsung Gear VR and open Oculus 360 Photos. Enjoy your own world!
