Stream your Drone Footage Live on Facebook!

27 April, 2016 | The Sphere Drones Blog

The annual F8 developer conference was held this month (12th April, 2016) and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stole the show yet again...

The tech guru himself announced the latest Facebook 'live-streaming video feature' at the conference on Tuesday that would "allow developers to build live Facebook video right into their apps".

Mr Zuckerberg used the DJI drone as an example at the conference, showing a live aerial shot with footage shown directly on a Facebook page. 

For anyone who owns a drone from the DJI Series, you may be wondering - 'well, DJI had already released this feature in 2015'... and indeed you are correct! However DJI were limited to working with Youtube only. By releasing an API (Application Programming Interface), showing your footage live from your drone will be made possible!

 

Stay tuned!
