Periscope will now let you stream 360-degree videos

A new to broadcast.

Twitter has just announced that it will be bringing in 360-degree support to Periscope in the next couple of days to users. This will let you view broadcasts in a whole new way and will be part of Twitter’s move to invest in more video-based content.

You can also start watching 360-degree videos straight from your smartphone. Once you see a 360-degree badge, you can tap that and from there you can use your finger to browse around the whole video or simply move/tilt your smartphone.

“Live 360 video isn’t just about taking you to places you’ve never been; it’s about connecting you with people and letting you experience something new with them. With these videos, the broadcaster anchors the experience so you can be present with them from whatever environment they’re sharing from. When they smile, you’ll smile, and when they laugh, maybe you’ll laugh too,” the company said in a blog post.

Users can start checking out 360-degree videos currently live on Periscope – but the ability to stream 360-degree content will come in the next few weeks.
