Periscope updated on Android to support 360 video broadcasting

Periscope users on iOS have been granted last month access to the Live 360 video feature that would allow a broadcaster to go live and share the entire surrounding environment.

Starting this week, Android users will be able to use the same feature on their devices. Periscope developers announced Live 360 videos would be marked with a “Live 360” badge, so whenever you see a 360 broadcast on Periscope or Twitter, you will now be able to change the point of view.

It's worth pointing out that 360 broadcasting is supported on iOS with the Insta360 Nano while broadcasting with the Insta360 Air is natively integrated with Periscope on Android.

If you plan on watching 360 video content on your iOS device, make sure you don't use Safari since it's not supported. Also, you'll need a compatible camera like the Ricoh Theta S or the Orah 4i in order to use this feature.

Moreover, to start broadcasting 360-degree video, you must update to the latest version of Periscope on either iOS or Android. Both apps should soon make it to App Store and Google Play, respectively.
