Periscope made its debut nearly two years ago right after competitor Meerkat launched its app at SXSW. While there have been some bumps in the road for the Twitter-owned live streaming app, it has pushed on, gaining new competition from the likes of Facebook and YouTube. In order to stay ahead, Periscope has now introduced 'Live 360' which will allow users to stream 360-degree videos to their followers.
Although the feature is not available for everyone at the moment, Periscope is offering a preview of the technology by debuting it with a small group of content creators. Twitter has plans to roll out the feature to more people in the coming weeks. If curious and would like to participate, you can apply to join the waitlist at this time.
According to the sign-up page, the app natively supports Insta360 Nano camera which can be purchased for around $199 from Amazon and B&H Photo Video. If you would like to use a different 360 camera, you can try, but must sign-up on the Producer page.
