Extreme sports enthusiasts can now insert more suspense into their GoPro videos by live-streaming their gasp-worthy adventures through Periscope.
Twitter-owned live-streaming app Periscope on Tuesday announced the integration, which can be taken advantage of by owners of GoPro Hero4 Silver and Black cameras. It will require the camera to be connected to an iPhone — sorry Android users, you’re out of luck — and will let users toggle between streaming from their phones and GoPros for dual-view thrills.
San Mateo, California-based GoPro has been experimenting with leveraging videos made using its cameras in an effort to find new ways to make money. Last year it unveiled its own licensing portal for brands and advertisers, but this latest move seems more about exposure and getting GoPro footage out into the world.
