Live video is a big trend for 2016, and with Meerkat out of the way for now, Periscope seems to have endless growth opportunities. Yet, despite the hype, live video hasn’t exactly caught on yet. In hopes that this will change, Periscope is doing its best to make updates that will bring in much needed users. Today comes another update.
Following the announcement in January that Periscope is now available to be used with a GoPro on iOS, the latest update for iOS brings some much-needed stabilisation for users who are live streaming from iPhone 6 or later. So, if your streams are a bit shaky, this is the update for you. Your viewers will really thank you for it – especially if you don’t have v very steady hands.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
But that’s not all. The update also has quite another cool feature. The daylight curve on the map! Yes! You can follow the sun from one feed to the other. If you’re into that kind of thing, you could follow sunsets from stream to stream… or sunrises. Think of any other use for the feature? Finally, a related feature is each broadcaster’s local time that appears in the stream – as long as they feel like sharing it.
The new features are available now!
