Twitter’s live video broadcast app Periscope has received some neat new features according to the Periscope blog.

The headline feature for the update is the inclusion of landscape mode, probably the most-requested feature since the launch of the app earlier this year. It allows you to broadcast in a more natural widescreen format, and should help you catch more of the action in most settings.

Other new features include an indicator of who shared a live stream when it appears in your feed, and the private broadcast share screen now shows a list of “mutual followers” – users you follow, who also follow you. It’s though that this list is a more useful starting point for selecting people with whom you’ll want to share that private broadcast.

Before discovering the Nexus One, Jason thought he didn't need a smartphone. Now he can't bear to be without his Android phone. Jason hails from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane depending on his mood and how detailed a history you'd like. A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking. Most mornings you'll find him tilting at various windmills on Twitter - follow @JM77 and say hi!
