Howdy Twitter Users! Your Periscope streams are now going to get much more better. Twitter owned company, on Thursday announced that it is now supporting 360-degree videos.
Although the feature will be available for only “selective partners” to create these special broadcasts, but any viewer can watch them live. This feature is rolling out now and will be available to more people over the “coming weeks.”
“We’ve always said that joining a broadcast is like stepping into someone else’s shoes and seeing the world through their eyes,” Periscope explained in a Medium post.
“Live 360 video isn’t just about taking you to places you’ve never been; it’s about connecting you with people and letting you experience something new with them.”

Starting yesterday, 360 videos will be denoted with a badge on both Twitter and Periscope. To create 360 videos, you will be needing a Insta360 Nano camera.
Release of this feature comes just weeks after Facebook announced support for 360 videos in live broadcasts, with even bigger release planned for the next year.
