Photo Sphere is a 360-degree panorama feature Google added in Android 4.2 (and originally with the Nexus 4) that lets you take immersive pictures with your phone, then share them online. You can pan and zoom, much like you can with the Street View feature we’ve all come to know on Google Maps. Only, these are our images.
Photo Sphere started on the Nexus, but it didn’t stay there for long. LG for a time had its own version, called VR Panorama. Samsung’s got one as an optional download, and HTC has included a “Pan 360” mode in its latest camera software. And Google has released its own camera app that includes Photo Sphere functionality. In August 2014, Google released a Photo Sphere app for iOS.
