From now on, while watching – or streaming – a live video on Periscope, you can turn your phone sideways and enjoy the video in landscape mode.
In its latest app update, Periscope has also added “shared context.” a new feature that lets you know who has shared a feed with you by adding a small indicator beneath it.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
Periscope has also made streaming privately easier but letting you select who can see your live feed among a list of mutual users (that means users you follow and they follow you too.) However this is only available on Android for now, with the feature coming “soon” to iOS, according to the company.
Finally, Periscope now lets you share streams to Facebook. This is not only a funny coincidence with Meerkat having done so a few weeks ago, but maybe more so with Facebook opening its Mentions app (and its own live streaming feature) to more users…. Well played Twitter?
