Periscope has offered live 360-degree broadcasting capabilities for some time. Now the streaming video company is rolling out panoramic video broadcasting support to iOS users. This means anyone with an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch can create videos with a "LIVE 360" label, using a panoramic camera such as the Insta360 Nano.
The original creators of Vine have released a new live streaming app one week after Twitter announced it would be shutting down its video sharing app. It is widely believed that the popularity of broadcasting services, such as Periscope and Facebook Live, is the reason Vine failed to survive. The demand for live streaming video has grown rapidly, but is there room for another live streaming app on the already crowded App Store?
You can watch Periscope live streams without the app if someone provides you with a direct link to a broadcast, but you won't be able to comment or give the user hearts. Periscope links are normally shared on Twitter or other social media by Periscope users trying to promote their streams.
Canceling your Periscope account is not easy. If you no longer want to use Periscope the best thing to do is to tap the user icon in the bottom right hand corner, then tap the Profile icon in the top right hand corner. From here scroll down and tap Logout. You can then delete the app from your device and never use it again. If logging out is not enough you can have your account deleted by contacting Periscope. Here's how to delete your Periscope account, according to Twitter:
Periscope is a free broadcasting app owned by Twitter that allows users to livestream videos from around the world. You can search the app for live broadcasts and user profiles, but you can't locate archived videos of past streams over 24 hours old. You can view some completed live streams by tapping the TV icon located on the bottom toolbar. This will give you a list of live streams that ended in the past 24 hours from users you follow. You can also view older live streams if you have a direct link to a saved web replay or if a user uploads the video to another service, such as YouTube.
