Twitter App for Apple TV Adds Live 360 Video and Periscope Global Map
  • Twitter’s Service on Apple TV includes Live Full Angle Video and Periscope’s World Cartography

Apparently, Twitter’s service on Apple TV includes among its salient features a live full angle video facility along with Periscope’s world cartography.

Twitter began its service on Apple TV last year. This day in time though it has updated its app in order to add some new features to it. These include Periscope’s Global Map and live 360 degree video clips.

According to TechCrunch, with this launch Twitter has really got a good thing going which is unique to boot. To test-run the novel facility, the users of Apple TV will employ the Siri remote to view the stuff from the platform in an immersive manner.

Twitter’s apps up until now have included those that work on Fire TV, Xbox One and Roku. Other live content that could be accessed by the Twitterati include cool item numbers from WNBA, BuzzFeed, Viacom, Live Nation and several other channels of expression.

Now though Twitter will offer 24/7 live coverage. During the first three months of 2017, Twitter underwent 77 million hours of live broadcast service. To produce 360 degree video clips, the users may use a number of utensils in the toolkit.

These include a Periscope Producer or a smartphone camera such as the Insta 360 Nano or the Insta 360 Air. The Periscope Map could allow for user-generated content to be accessed from anywhere around the global village.

What this new facility makes Twitter, according to Engadget, is a phenomenon even more popular and famous than YouTube or Facebook. The competition is neck to neck.

The two giant platforms, one video clip-based and the other one social contact-based, will be trying to compete with Twitter in this regard. That is because their very livelihoods are at stake.

According to AppleInsider, users may scroll around any location on a 3D globe thanks to this new facility offered by Twitter. Apple TV and Twitter are in a mutually beneficial alliance that will benefit both immensely. There is no doubt about this.
