If you don't know, Periscope is Twitter's live video client which lets one broadcast as well as explore through the eyes of other users.
Starting yesterday, Twitter has added a new feature to its social network platform. Kind of similar to Facebook Live, Twitter has now introduced 360-degree live video streaming through which users can explore 360-degree content broadcasted by their fellow users on the website. Further, this new feature has also been extended to Periscope. If you don't know, Periscope is Twitter's live video client which lets one broadcast as well as explore through the eyes of other users.
"Videos having a LIVE 360 badge can be interacted by moving your device or swiping the screen in order to get the 360-degree view. While the feature is available for all, only select partners can actually broadcast in 360-degree via Periscope.
Live 360 videos are marked with a badge. When you see a 360 broadcast on Periscope or Twitter, you can change the point of view by moving your phone or tapping and scrolling around the screenâ€Šâ€”â€Šall while watching live.
We're testing 360 broadcasts with a small group of partners, and will be rolling out this feature more broadly during the coming weeks. " - read the Periscope blog post.
