Previously announced at this year’s F8 conference, Facebook has finally introduced three-dimensional capabilities that change 2D pictures into 3D photos. In an attempt to “bring scenes to life with depth and movement,” the social media platform will allow users to take pictures in portrait mode and begin the process to make it three-dimensional in a new Facebook post.

In order to create the image, you must tap the menu icon on the top right screen of the new post and select “3D Photo,” which will transfer you to the portrait photo folder in your phone. After selecting a picture, just post it like usual. It can be viewed in the News Feed as well as with the assistance of an Oculus Go or Oculus Rift. Facebook has suggested using photos with various layers of depth, subjects that have contrasting colors to their backgrounds, and subjects with solid edges and texture.

Although the feature is slowly rolling out within the coming weeks, everyone will be able to view 3D photos within the app starting today.

Check out the video demonstration below and share your thoughts in the comments.
