Periscope Flips, Now Also Offers Landscape Video
Broadcasters now have the option to shoot horizontally on the Twitter-owned network.
Live-streaming app Periscope no longer plays favorites in the landscape-or-portrait video argument.
Today the Twitter-owned network updated its iOS and Android apps to support shooting video in landscape mode, giving broadcasters the ability to capture wider vistas. People launching Periscope streams can now shoot with their phones upright or on their side. And viewers can watch in portrait mode or adjust to match the broadcaster’s orientation.
“Either way, you’ll never need to tilt your head to watch sideways video,” the company noted in a blog post.
