Periscope, Twitter’s live-streaming app, is no longer restrained to your phone’s camera.

Periscope and GoPro announced Tuesday morning the ability to broadcast from the GoPro HERO 4 camera, via the Periscope for iPhone app.

Periscope shared the steps to start broadcasting from your GoPro camera:

  1. Connect to your GoPro’s WiFi, making sure it’s on video mode.
  2. Open Periscope on your iPhone & tap the broadcast button.
  3. The GoPro button will automatically be highlighted — so give your broadcast a title and go live.

Right now, broadcast functionality is only available on iOS, via iPhone 5s, 6 and 6+ with iOS 8.2.

Pablo Jablonski, a Periscope iOS engineer, shared his thoughts in a blog post:

As a skier myself, I’ve always loved extreme sports, and I love how GoPro can show us all of the crazy things these athletes can do. As an iOS engineer on Periscope, bringing these two technologies together has been a the fulfillment of a longtime personal wish. Starting with X Games and moving forward, Periscope and GoPro together will bring these LIVE moments to all the fans.

Here are some replay reactions from Periscopers:
