Periscope Now Lets You Search, Save, and Stream From A Drone

Periscope is stepping up its game.

Periscope, Twitter’s live-streaming video app, allows users to watch and broadcast video from all over the globe. Now, thanks to a new function, you can revisit any one of these memories, and even record from new heights.

The company behind the app has announced that by adding “#save” to your title, your videos will now be saved instead of discarded within 24 hours. The company has also incorporated a search function that focuses on two special topics: “First Scope” which shows new broadcasters, and “GoPros and Drones,” which, as its name suggests, shows you people streaming from GoPros and… drones!

You got that right: Periscope is adding the ability to switch between your phone and a DJI drone. According to their blog, “To broadcast, just connect your iPhone to your drone’s remote. We’ll automatically pull in your drone’s video feed and let you switch between it, your iPhone cameras, and even your GoPro. During your broadcast, you can narrate from a bird’s eye view using your phone or even Sketch on the broadcast to highlight different sights.”
