However, in order to use the latest feature, you will need to own both Essential Phone as well as the Essential 360 Camera module. If you are interested in purchasing a new handset, then you can take a look at the phone as it has gone through two different price cuts as sales haven’t lived up to the company’s expectations.

If you connect the Essential 360 Camera is attached to the handset’s magnetic accessory port at the back, it instantly gives you option to live stream on Facebook. When you attach the camera, it will automatically bring up the camera application and you will be able to find the 360-degree Live option in the 360 mode pretty easily. If you tap on the live button, you will be prompted to log into Facebook and then grant permission to post on your account. Afterwards, you can live stream from the device.
