GoPro action camera users can now broadcast their daring adventures live through Twitter’s Periscope app, opening the door to a whole new dimension of real-time video sharing.
The live-streaming app announced on Tuesday that it was now integrated with GoPro, meaning that the sometimes insane footage captured on wearable cameras can now find a much larger audience – one that is drawn to the attraction of watching events on their phones as the action unfolds.
With the new feature, people with GoPro cameras can connect their devices to WiFi, open Periscope on an iPhone, tap the “broadcast” button and immediately go live. With a double tap, users can switch between broadcasting from the GoPro and the smartphone camera, and the GoPro will continue to record the footage while it streams.
Periscope – the app that attracted 10 million users in its first four months last year– has enabled journalists, entertainers, politicians and others to broadcast live to the public directly from their phones.
