Periscope now has an On Air button for websites (like The Next Web!) that tell everyone when a broadcast is live.
It’s a useful little tweak that anyone can use. All you have to do is enter your Periscope username (typically your Twitter handle without the ‘@‘) into Periscope’s button generator, and it creates an code so you can embed a button into a webpage. Your username takes the place of the ‘broadcaster’ text, seen below.
New York, meet the world’s tech scene
5,000 Tech leaders are coming to NYC this November to learn and do business. This is your chance to join them.
Periscope’s On Air button also comes in two sizes, and automatically toggles when a broadcast goes live.
It’s easy to see how this may be useful for — well, everyone. Sites like this one could embed buttons for bloggers attending events, and those with their own websites could do the same.
