Drone footage is always amazing because it gives us a glimpse at angles and heights that most of us probably wouldn’t be able to capture ourselves. Also because drone footage can be piloted by you, it does bring about a whole new experience. The good news is that if you own a DJI drone, you’ll now be able to share that experience with your Facebook friends.
Last month, the company announced that they would soon allow users to broadcast live streams to Facebook Live from the drone, and now it looks like the update made to the Go app will enable drone users to do just that. The update is available iOS users and for Android users, it looks like you guys will have to wait a bit before it is your turn.
Using the feature is pretty straightforward, plus with Facebook soon removing time limits from Live streams, you will be able to stream as long as your drone is able to stay in the air. The live footage will also help attract a whole new audience who might be interested in watching a live drone stream rather than someone holding a camera or a phone.
However if you have more followers on Twitter/Periscope, DJI drone pilots will also have the option of being able to broadcast live via the Periscope platform as well.
