As part of the new Live 360 Ready Camera Program, Facebook is vetting third-party 360 cameras and software solutions to determine which play nice with the company's platform. Additionally, the buttons that used to reside below the big, red control bar which allowed you to like or dislike a video are now hidden and are revealed by choosing the More Options button. Some of the first cameras certified as Live 360 ready include the Giroptic IO and Insta 360 Air, as well as the ION 360U and Nokia's Ozo camera. Facebook also gave a thumbs up to the following software: Assimilate SCRATCH VR, Groovy Gecko, Livescale 360, Teradek, Voysys, Wowza, and Z CAM WonderLive. To take advantage of 4K VR, users will need to have a Samsung Gear VR, which is powered by Facebook's Oculus technology, as well as download the free Facebook 360 app for Gear VR.

It's been a few months now since Facebook rolled out 360 live streaming to pretty much anyone with a camera capable of supporting it.

Facebook has introduced some updates to its Live 360 feature - adding support for 4K resolution, VR, donate buttons and scheduling, as well as giving a range of cameras and software suites its Live 360 seal of approval. As of now, it's unclear if this feature will be expanded on in the future to include support for non-profits outside of the USA, such as those in Canada.
