Long time after Facebook and YouTube involved multidirectional broadcasting, Twitter has now announced support for Live 360 Video. It’s totally a new way to see what’s happening on Twitter and Periscope.
We’ve always said that joining a broadcast is like stepping into someone else’s shoes and seeing the world through their eyes. Today, we’re introducing a more immersive way to experience those moments — with live 360 video.
Provided that the video has a red LIVE 360 badge at the bottom-left of the screen on Twitter or Periscope, you can engage with live, interactive 360 degree video by moving the phone or swiping the screen. As of writing this article, only select broadcast partners can go live in 360 via Periscope, but the waitlist is open for those interested in joining Live 360 Video as the feature rolls out widely in the coming weeks.
