Hi

Does anyone know if Dropbox are looking into supporting 360 pics?   

Thanks

I have pictures taken with a Ricoh Theta 360 camera.  I have the pictures uploaded to Dropbox but can't view them in 360 mode.  I have the same pictures uploaded to different online storage sites and they seem to have the 360 viewer software built in and allow for viewing the photos in 360 mode.

It doesn't seem Dropbox support 360 viewing of such pictures. I also have a lot of them taken by Samsung Gear 360. What kind of online storage have you been using for 360 photos?

Hey Becksm, thanks for checking in with us on the Dropbox Community! 
 
While we currently preview several filetypes on dropbox.com and in the Dropbox mobile apps (& we also sync all filetypes across devices), 360 pics aren’t currently supported. I’d happily pass on your interest to our team for future consideration though. Can you let me know a bit more info on the ways you’re storing & processing your 360° photos? 
 
Thanks again & I’m looking forward to hearing back from you!

Hi there

We are producing VR or equirectangular jpegs.  These are produced on our 3D software.   

We then load to Vimeo/Youtube/Facebook to run, but we want to store in Dropbox and use showcase for our clients to view. 

Thanks

You can certainly store the files in Dropbox, but Dropbox will not be able to preview or otherwise display those files. You'd have to continue using Vimeo, Youtube, etc., to display them.

Thanks for all the details Becksm, I’ve made to pass it up the ladder to our team as a feature request. Cheers!

Jane,

We're a construction company using DropBox with our clients and need 360 support!  These photos are becoming prevalent and expected, and DropBox needs a supported viewer, otherwise we'll need to move to Google Drive.

Is this on your development roadmap, and how soon?

Dropbox doesn't provide such information. We typically won't know about a new feature until it's released or officially announced.

No worries.  I guess we're moving to Google Drive.

Thanks

Looks like we too will need to move over to Google Drive.  Come on Dropbox!!
