Action-camera maker GoPro today announced a live-streaming service for GoPro Plus members who want to broadcast their adventures.
GoPro Plus offers unlimited cloud storage, up to two camera replacements per year, and discounts on accessories for $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year. Members can now live stream high-quality video to GoPro.com via the Hero8 Black, Hero7 Black, or Max cameras.
“We are really excited to offer high-quality, simplified live streaming to GoPro Plus subscribers,” GoPro Founder and CEO Nicholas Woodman said in a press release. “GoPro Plus subscribers can now live stream from their GoPro camera to their account at GoPro.com, text the live stream link to their family and friends, and boom … they’re LIVE.”
So, how many people see your live stream depends on how far and wide you share your custom live-stream link. You can also live stream to Facebook.
A new Hero8 Black firmware update, meanwhile, adds HyperSmooth 2.0 video stabilization to more video settings. It also moves GoPro Webcam support for macOS out of beta; for Windows users, it’s still in beta via the GoPro Webcam desktop utility.
The Hero8 Black and Hero7 Black are PCMag’s Editors’ Choice for action cameras and camcorders. The newer Hero8 Black is the company’s best action camera to date, we found, offering class-leading stabilization and video quality in a rugged, waterproof body.
