Periscope users can now post 360-degree live videos, if they have the right camera

More and more 360-degree videos are being posted on YouTube, Facebook, and other social networks. This week, Twitter’s Periscope live video service announced it has now added support for Android device owners to post live 360-degree videos for the first time.

If you are just watching clips on Periscope, you can see any 360-degree videos that are being broadcast if they show the ‘Live 360’ badge. However, if you want to actually broadcast your own 360 videos from your Android phone on Periscope or Twitter, your options are limited at the moment.

The only camera that attaches to an Android smartphone that supports native 360 video broadcasting for Periscope is the $129.99 Insta360 Air. If you use the Periscope Producer option on the app, you can broadcast 360-degree video from two external cameras at the moment, the Ricoh Theta S and the Orah 4i.

While the hardware options for this new feature are pretty limited, it’s likely that more cameras will be added in the future that will work with Periscope’s 360-degree video broadcasting support. In the meantime, you can purchase the Insta360 Air camera on Amazon, along with the Ricoh Theta S for $283.60. The Orah 4i is a professional-grade 360-degree camera, and is available for the price of $3,955 on Amazon.
