Livestream launches Google Glass broadcasting app

New, 8 comments

Recording first-person videos is one of the coolest things that Google Glass can do, and Livestream is giving Glass owners another way to broadcast those recordings right as they happen. Over the weekend, Livestream launched its first broadcasting app for Glass, giving the headset a way to stream directly onto the platform.

The app is a little more basic than its iOS and Android counterparts — it can't do much more than broadcast — but it does let broadcasters view chat messages on their video in real time too. Getting started should be fairly easy too: you just need to pair a headset with an event and then say "Ok Glass, Livestream" to get going. While live broadcasting isn't new to Glass thanks to existing apps like Hangouts, the addition of Livestream, one of the most popular broadcasting platforms out there, is a big one nonetheless.
