Just a month ago, Periscope started allowing anyone using its iOS app or Periscope Producer to broadcast live in 360 degrees. Now, it’s extending the feature to Android users as well.
Periscope 360 is finally complete! Users on iOS, Android or Periscope Producer can now broadcast live in 360 degrees. Periscope 360 videos can be viewed on Periscope and Twitter, but on the web, they cannot be viewed on Safari – which is strange, since the feature first launched on iOS. Live 360 content has a special “Live 360” badge separating it from other Periscope live videos.
Whoever is given access to the feature will have to use a special 360 camera however. Currently, the Insta360 Nano integrates natively with Periscope on iOS, and all you have to do is attach the camera to go live in 360. And yes, you will need the latest update of iOS to do so. With Periscope Producer, you will need to use the Ricoh Theta S or the Orah 4i, to go live.
