The strange periscope shaped “RE” camera from HTC now has an update to its android app counterpart that adds a significant new feature, live YouTube streaming. The update was released today after it’s recent announcement at CES 2015.

The RE doesn’t actually have any connection to the internet itself, so you’ll have to depend on your smartphone paired with the RE camera app to stream any content. With a 16 megapixel sensor, the RE should be able to get some decent video, though, the process of a video stream going through the RE, then through a smartphone and finally to YouTube can’t be good for quality or latency.

If you own the RE and want to start live-streaming, head over to the play store for the free update.
