The latest version released today of Periscope introduces Landscape mode for broadcasting use, making it easier for users to use the app without having to “tilt your head to watch sideways video.” Early users of Periscope have faced this inconvenience for quite a while, as the app had only offered Portrait mode. With today’s update, the problem finally goes away.
“We know the community has been craving this feature —-we wanted to be thoughtful about our approach to ensure a seamless experience across all of our platforms (iOS, Android and Web),” says the Periscope post at Medium.
Besides Landscape, there are three more new features: Share Contact (an indicator tells you who shared a broadcast with you), Accessibility (inclusion of iOS accessibility features for the visually impaired), and Mutual Follow (an easier way to share private broadcasting, now available for Android and later for iOS).
Periscope will also be one of the early apps to be available on the Apple TV platform, mainly for people to watch the many streams shared by users.
