The news tools are Guide and Heatmap.
Guide gives viewers a guided tour of 360 video as it plays. Facebook says this ensures viewers won't miss any key moments, and encourages "lean back" viewing.
Heatmap is an analytics tools that shows you which areas of your 360 degree video viewers are spending the most time on.
Since launching last September, over 250,000 360 videos have been uploaded to Facebook.
These updates will give brands more control over narrative storytelling, and info and what's resonating with viewers.
