Facebook has improved its 3D photos feature to give more users the chance to bring their images to life.

The feature previously only worked for high-end smartphones with upmarket camera specifications.  

But Facebook has now extended the feature so it works on older phones, such as mid-market Androids and the iPhone 7.  

The feature can now also be used on the single lens, front-facing camera to take 3D selfies.

Facebook says this improvement is due to advancements in its AI and teaching it to infer 3D structures from 2D photos within a fraction of a second.  

'This advance makes 3D photo technology easily accessible for the first time to the many millions of people who use single-lens camera phones or tablets,' Facebook researchers said in a statement. 

It will work on an iPhone 7 or newer and a recent mid-range Android handset.
