Periscope now allows Android users to broadcast live 360-degree video. This functionality was previously limited to iOS users and those broadcasting through Periscope Producer.
Live 360-degree broadcasts are labeled with a special “Live 360” badge, and they can be watched on both Periscope and Twitter. In a help article, Periscope said web users can watch these broadcasts “on all web browsers except for Safari.”
While watching 360-degree videos, users can change their point of view by moving their phones, or by tapping and scrolling around the screen.
Periscope isn’t the only social platform that supports live 360-degree videos. YouTube launched its support for 360-degree live videos in April 2016, while Facebook introduced its Live 360 feature in December 2016.
