Download the mode “Surround shot”

In your camera app, click “Mode” and download the mode called “Surround shot”. This makes it possible to take photos with 360 degree view, with the camera in your Samsung Galaxy S6 och Galaxy Note 4.

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!
