Now the broadcaster you can choose whether to broadcast your video with your iPhone standing or lying down. Anyone who wants to be able to continue watching the broadcast vertically, but obviously without the video occupying the entire screen.

The novelty has a lot to do with a rumor released the day before yesterday by TechCrunch, before the new Apple TV was even announced. According to their sources, Twitter is working on a Periscope app for television and that is why, more than ever, it is important that broadcasts can be made in landscape mode.
