Twitter and Periscope add 360 video livestreaming for select accounts
You can now watch live 360 video on Twitter and Periscope.
You can see a video of a 360 livestream here.
Currently, only select accounts will be able to create a 360 livestream. Periscope says they will be "rolling out the feature more broadly during the coming weeks."
Twitter's announcement comes on the heels of Facebook's announcement of its 360 livestreaming feature called Live 360. There are currently a few 360 cameras that have or will have 360 livestreaming capability, including the Insta360 Nano, 360fly 4k, upcoming Insta360 Air and Giroptic iO. The Ricoh Theta S also has livestreaming, but requires a USB or HDMI connection to a PC.
Thank you very much to Mike Cane (Atomic Supermen blog) for bringing this to my attention!
