AppleInsider reports that Twitter has announced that users of the iOS Twitter app can now view streaming Periscope videos directly in their timeline without having to switch over to the Periscope app.

Tweets embedded with both live broadcasts and delayed broadcasts will now be able to be viewed directly via the Twitter iOS app, although the live broadcasts will only work when the broadcast is live, of course!

Other Periscope features introduced include being able to view videos in fullscreen mode, as well as the ability to view comments and “hearts” from other users. If you want to actually post a comment yourself on Periscope you will still have to switch to the Periscope app in order to do so.

As AppleInsider notes, this is a smart move from Twitter as it means that a much larger audience will now be viewing Periscope content than previously.

The feature is currently an iOS exclusive, but should expand to Android and the web version of Twitter soon.
