Users of Periscope can now Vlog in the orientation of their choice, as the latest update brings support for landscape captures.
[blockquote author=””]Viewers can continue holding their device in portrait, or match the broadcaster’s orientation to maintain full screen video. Either way, you’ll never need to tilt your head to watch sideways video.[/blockquote]

There are also some other cool features that Periscope users should find useful:
Share Context: When someone you follow shares a broadcast, it appears in your home feed. In this update, we’ve added an indicator beneath the broadcast title explaining who shared it with you. No more wondering why a broadcast showed up in your feed!
Accessibility: We’ve heard from a lot of people that Periscope needs to be more accessible for visually impaired Periscopers. In this version we’ve made large steps towards improving support for iOS accessibility features. We’ll continue to invest in this over time!
Mutual Follow: This update makes private broadcasting much easier on Android. When you start a private broadcast, you can choose from a list of mutual followers (people you follow, who also follow you). We think this list is a more natural selection of people who you are likely to broadcast to. We’ve also added an option to quickly select all of your mutual follows. See something you want to share with your friends, but not the whole world? Check.
Periscope historically only supported portrait broadcasting and apparently landscape support was something users were continually asking for. The support is built into the latest version of Periscope and is available in the Google Play Store.
