The new Livestream iOS app lets you stream video from GoPro HERO cameras live via your iPhone’s 4G cellular data connection, sending the action straight to your friends via a shared link. They’ve also updated the app to let you lock the screen during use, so you can set it streaming then tuck your phone safely inside your pack or pocket.
You’ll need one of the GoPro HERO3 or HERO4 with built in WiFi (or, presumably, the WiFi bacpac for the older models) to connect your phone to the camera’s network, then select the GoPro from the Livestream App’s menu to let it see what your camera’s seeing. Once there, just tell it to go live and anyone with the link you’ve shared can watch your action in real time.
The app will even allow two-way chatting while broadcasting, the ability to post snapshots to the feed and live video filters. As long as you’ve got 4G or LTE signal strength, you should be good to go. Check video of it in action below…
