Periscope presents highlights broadcasts
Periscope is constantly seeking to improve the discovery of content from its iPhone and Android. The latest idea is to present “Highlights” (highlights) broadcasts of the people you follow.
Highlights are somehow trailers or excerpts of broadcasts. They are created automatically.Highlights present excerpts from broadcasts in your network and broadcasts “trend”.
So how are selected broadcasts that appear in the highlights section? According Persicope, several factors influence this presence. For example, broadcasts shared by your friends may appear in this section. In this case, an indicator above the title of the broadcast state who was sharing.
The highlights also appear on the profile of each user. The goal is probably to allow users to quickly get an idea on the subject of the latest creations of a person from his profile.
The autoplay on Android
As you already know, this music is everywhere. Videos on Twitter, Facebook and Vine are triggered automatically. Well, the automated triggering of video arrives at Periscope.
When you are in sections Subscriptions (the TV icon) and the global section (globe icon), the first three broadcasts that appear there will be triggered automatically. For now, this new concerns only the Android version of Periscope.
