Twitter today announced that users of its mobile app can now broadcast Periscope-powered live video. Why go live on Twitter? Because live video broadcasts “bring moments and events to life in a way that no other medium can,” said the popular microblogging service. This newly added feature requires an update to Twitter’s mobile app, which is rolling out to everyone on the App Store today.
YouTube today began rolling out support for both standard and 360-degree live streaming in 4K video resolution, a change that will significantly improve visual quality of panoramic live streams.

The fourth-generation Apple TV allows you to begin watching a live channel immediately, simply by asking Siri. Called Live Tune-In, this feature works with supported video-streaming apps that provide live TV functionality.

Live streaming support for third-party apps is among the 30+ developer-focused features Apple did not discuss publicly during the WWDC 2016 keynote. Realized through ReplayKit Live, a new framework on iOS 10 that lets players share gameplay recordings or broadcast live games to other players and viewers online, the feature was originally absent from the first beta of iOS 10.
iOS 10 beta 2 turns on this functionality and, as a Reddit post noted today, live-streaming can already be found in Apple’s Swift Playgrounds app for the iPad.
