Periscope adds new features

PeriscopePeriscope has added three new features to its live video streaming service that are designed to make it easier for users to discover and watch content.

The Twitter-owned service is introducing Highlights, a new feature that automatically generates a short trailer for every Periscope broadcast.

Periscope users will also now be able to embed Periscope videos anywhere on the web in embedded Tweets – a feature that is already being used by publishers like El Pais, the Washington Post and Mashable.

The third update is the addition of Autoplay Live Broadcasts on Android, with autoplay for iOS due to be added “soon”.

“On Android, live broadcasts will autoplay in the Watch Tab and Global Feed without sound, so you can see what’s happening around the world immediately when you open Periscope. If you find a broadcast interesting, you can simply tap to get the full live experience,” according to Periscope.
