How to capture 360-degree photo using Android phone

05 April 2018 3

Capturing 360-degree pictures and videos and flaunting them on social media is quite basic today. And, you have to have a good 360-degree camera that could help you in capturing those impressive and immersive videos and pictures. Well, not everyone has a dedicated camera for capturing such stuff but we do have a guide on the same following which you can actually capture the 360-degree photos from your Android phone. Yes, that’s right, just using your Android phone.

Well, before you follow this guide, make sure your phone supports the gyroscope sensor. If you’re not sure if your phone supports it or not then simply check the specifications of the phone.

The first method is using the Google Camera app. This app has a built-in option “Sphere” that lets you capture the 360-degree photos. It captures every single photo of your surrounding that you’ll shoot from this app and then stitch them together to offer you a complete 360-degree picture.


Simply install the app open it and access the “Sphere” option from the menu provided on the right side of the app. Follow the dots and click the pictures. The blue dot must be inside the circle, this indicates where you need to take the picture in order to have a complete 360-degree picture. You need to take the phone in front of your face and do not change its angle. Just move along the dots keeping the angle of the phone steady.

The second application is Google Street View that lets you click the 360-degree photo with an ease. Once you install the application you’ll see a camera icon right on the home screen of the app. Click that icon and you will need to click every shot so that the app could stitch all these images together and present a 360-degree photo for you that can be shared later.


Well, these weren't the simplest ways to capture the 360-degree photos but they do work if you don't have a special 360-degree camera that could make your job done.
