Twitter announce 360 video

Check out live 360 video on Twitter

Twitter have introduced a new way to see what’s happening on Twitter – through live 360 video.

Starting today, you can check out live, interactive 360 videos from interesting broadcasters and explore what’s happening with them. You’ll be able to get an inside look with well-known personalities and go behind the scenes at exclusive events.

When you see a video marked with a LIVE 360 badge, you can interact with it to change what you see by moving your phone or swiping the screen – all while watching live. See what’s unfolding behind, above, or below the broadcaster’s view for an immersive experience.

Although everyone on Twitter and Periscope can watch live 360 videos, currently only select partners can go live in 360 via Periscope. For more details, check out the Periscope blog.
