After waiting over a month since their demonstration at Facebook’s F8 conference, DJI has finally made good on their promise. The latest update to the DJI GO App for compatible DJI products is already available on the iTunes App Store, with the Google Play Store to follow suit very soon.
Using your Facebook login details from within DJI’s GO app allows you to send a feed directly to your account. From there, the stream happens just like normal, with the quality of the feed depending on your network coverage. The app uses your phone’s built-in microphone too, so you can talk to your viewers in real time.
It has been a great first half of the year for DJI, having released the Phantom 4, the latest incarnation of their budget line of drones. 2016 also saw the release of the Matrice 600 aerial platform, as well as improvements to the Osmo handheld gimbal, offering RAW capabilities and better stabilisation. All of these products are compatible with the DJI Go app, which probably means you will start seeing some quite interesting perspectives popping up as live video streams on your Facebook timeline in the near future.
