Periscope gains support for landscape video


If you use Periscope to broadcast video from your Android device, you’re getting a new feature to play with today.

Periscope is getting an update to support landscape video. That means that when you tilt your phone sideways, the video sent to all of your viewers will be in landscape mode. Viewers can continue to watch with their phone in portrait orientation if they’d like, but they’ll need to turn it landscape to get full screen video.


In addition to landscape video, the new Periscope update adds context for shared videos that appear in your feed. With this feature, you’ll see an indicator showing who shared the video to you. There’s also a mutual follow feature that Periscope promises will make private broadcasts easier by showing you a list of mutual follows — people that you follow and that also follow you — since it thinks that those are the people that you’re likely to invite to your private stream.

You can grab Periscope from Google Play using the source link below.
