The company who produce the Insta360 range of 360-degree cameras has today announced a dedicated version for Android at IFA 2016.

It comes as part of a move by social networks to push 360-video viewing,  allowing you to capture and stream 360-video right from your Android device.

It also comes after they released a version for the iPhone earlier last year.

The version for Android will be available from November this year and will feature the same 1080p camera sensor as the iPhone version, but without the built in battery pack,  requiring a smartphone for use.

The camera connects to your smartphone via a micro USB port And uses that port to both charge and sync over a dedicated Android app.

The company also said that they are planning to release a USB Type-C version.

The Insta360 Air for Android will  be available in November. It is expected to cost less than the £200 Nano model.
