Periscope gained a million users within 10 days of its debut, and as live-streaming continues to grow, users share more than 10 years’ worth of content every day through the app.

With new features, Periscope hopes to make live streaming through its app even more accessible.

The Twitter-owned app announced that its users can shoot landscape video through both its iOS and Android apps and that the stream would adjust to fit viewers’ screens.

“As much as we’re fans of portrait video, we know that there are times where the scene you’re trying to capture is best expressed in landscape,” a company blog post states.

Along with landscape video, Periscope users can also share their streams on Facebook, as well as through Twitter.
