Twitter’s Periscope launches live 360° video
In a blog post announcing the launch, Periscope said that the new streaming option marks “one step closer to actually being there” and that viewers will be able to access live 360° videos on both Periscope and Twitter.
Live 360° degree videos will be marked with a badge and viewers will be able to change the point of view by moving their phone or tapping and scrolling around the screen.
“We’re testing 360 broadcasts with a small group of partners, and will be rolling out this feature more broadly during the coming weeks,” said Periscope.
“Starting today, you’ll be able to join live 360 videos on Periscope and Twitter from some incredible broadcasters — getting front-row access at exclusive events, traveling to places across the globe, and getting up close with well-known personalities.”
