You don't have to visit Montana or invite 100 of your closest friends to the next rock concert to make good use of the Wide Selfie Mode on your new Samsung Galaxy S®6 or Galaxy S®6 edge. In fact, there are lots of place you'll want to use it, just about every day.

To use Wide Selfie Mode, launch the Camera on your device and tap the front camera icon. Tap the Mode icon and then select Wide Selfie Mode. When you're ready to take your selfie, tap the screen or the sensor on the back of the camera. If you're looking for a good place to start, here are a few suggestions.

1. When Your Posse Finally Arrives

When friends and family get together, don't pick and choose who gets in the shot. Just activate Wide Selfie Mode and let them all pile in. You should never let a phone pick and choose your friends.

2. When There's Just Too Much To Choose From

Not certain which outfit expresses the mood you're aiming for? Maybe you want some instant advice on social media about which bottle of wine you should bring to the party tonight. There's no reason to limit what gets in the shot. Take a photo of it all.

3. When You Look Too Good To Be Cropped

When you're looking great from your hair down to your choice in shoes, let your friends see everything. After all, when you're looking this good, why deprive anyone of the full view?

4. When the Flowers Bloom

There's a reason why the word "panoramic" is so often used when describing sunsets and the beauty of nature. The next time you're out in the country, or in your backyard garden, let your friends imagine themselves in the scenery with you. But save the photo for Monday morning, then post it when you know they're in their cubicles.

5. When That Song Comes On

You know the song we're talking about. When it starts playing, you can't help but spread your arms wide and sing along. The last thing you need is to try to capture the moment by scrunching yourself up or standing rigid like a scarecrow. Spread your arms and sing.

6. When No Height is a Barrier

Prove to your friends that you don't know the meaning of the word acrophobia. (Which, by the way, is a fear of heights.) When you're climbing the highest mountain, the tallest step ladder, or triumphantly getting the badminton birdie down from the roof gutter, show everyone that you're on top of the world.

Disclaimer: Just, you know, be careful, because we're still a bit nervous for you. And, yeah, try not to drop your phone, okay?
