Above: Bill @Couch, far right, demonstrates “Couchmode” at Periscope HQ.

Periscope product engineer Bill Couch tweeted a link Monday to his stream introducing their new “Couchmode” function, which enables random nexting for web users.

We learned from the video that “Couchmode” will feature popular streams, although the selection process was not revealed. Couch later tweeted some tips, including:

We also learned that they watch streams an a TV turned vertically at the Periscope headquarters, seen above at left, and which I have been thinking about doing for some time.

Couch also introduced new Periscope web engineer Patrick Camacho and together they promised that more web features will be coming soon. The Next Web has more info: Periscope’s new Couch Mode let’s you watch an endless stream of live video

There hasn’t been much more reporting but lots of people are tweeting about “Couchmode.”

“The reason journalism through Periscope is so compelling is because it’s the first time the news is not a passive experience.”

“[With] prerecorded content—and even live television—you sit on your couch and just consume what’s been packaged for you. With Periscope, you can contribute. Viewers can ask the broadcaster questions. The other difference is that it has the potential to be more immediate. It’s difficult to put three cameramen, an audio guy, and a reporter on a truck or on a plane and send them somewhere. It’s easier for someone who’s already there to pull out their phone. I think you’ll see more coverage of notable events, more quickly. When the fire happened [in New York’s East Village] the day of our launch, there were 60 people broadcasting it simultaneously—half an hour before the first camera crews got there.” – Periscope CEO Kayvon BeykpourPeriscope CEO Kayvon Beykpour: “Periscope has become a medium that can build truth and empathy”
