Azimuth - support in software and digicams

Hi, I am investigating support of Azimuth (direction of view) in nowadays cameras and software. As far as I know some smartphones do have a magnetometer that allows to tell which direction the device is oriented towards (north, south, ...etc).
I am wondering whether modern cameras could use such a magnetometer to tag a photo with direction in the same way as they do with location.

So far the only program I found that allows to display (and edit) geo-direction is this one:

screen 1
screen 2

Does anyone know whether Adobe Lightroom will have support for this ?

And the second question: are there any digicams (not smartphones) with support for tagging azimuth in EXIF ? (having magnetometer built-in)
Best regards,

This question has not been answered yet.
