Popular live streaming service Livestream announced today that it’s launching a Google Glass app that will allow users to broadcast directly from the hardware. While you could always accomplish live streaming with Google Glass using Google’s own Hangouts app, this will loop into Livestream’s ecosystem, allowing video you shoot with Glass to go straight to an event page on Livestream’s website and mobile apps. You’ll also be able to view feedback from your audience and respond with your voice. For now you’ll have to scan a QR code on the event’s page with Glass to start streaming, but soon you’ll be able to initiate Glass streaming through the Livestream mobile apps.
The first live broadcasting video app for Google Glass allows users to broadcast live from their Glass camera to Livestream’s Platform™ with a single tap. Additionally, Livestream’s Glass app enables users to view real-time chat messages from audiences online and respond via voice. The app can also be used as a remote camera with Livestream Studio™.
