Livestreaming is coming to the skies. Periscope
Soon you’ll be able to livestream from your drone. In January, Periscope started letting people with a GoPro broadcast live footage, and today it opened up support for drones from its iPhone app, too.
Periscope’s app now connects with DJI drone remotes so that users can control broadcasts by switching the feed from their smartphone’s camera to the drone. In a blog post today, Periscope pointed out a recent example, by restaurant review site Zagat, which used a drone to show viewers around Ryder Farm in Brewster, N.Y.
In addition to the support for drones, Periscope is also adding a search feature for looking up specific livestreams by keyword or topics. The search bar recommends searching for hashtags like #music and #food. Users can also tap on hashtags to add them to their own livestreams.
