Periscope Turns Screenshotting Into A Social Expertise
A brand new model of Periscope popped itself up on the App Retailer at present which permits viewers to share screenshots that they take throughout your stream. Moreover a bit screenshot icon will present up in chat letting you and everybody else know that a screenshot has been taken.
It’s a very sensible function that works seamlessly, giving the viewer some context to share with their very own followers:

However, Periscope isn’t ignoring the personal broadcast usecase, because it launched a personal broadcast function with “mutuals.” It enables you to see an inventory of everybody you comply with that follows you again and invite them in a single faucet.
The previous function is all about setting Periscope up because the defacto service for celebs (each web and mainstream) to construct up a following on the service.

Manufacturers are frothing on the mouth for the “full package deal”.
