Starting today, Twitter’s iOS and Android app users can add guests to their live video broadcasts on the social platform. The company allowed Periscope users to open their video streams to guests back in February and now, the feature has come to the main site as well.
Starting today, you can broadcast live with up to three guests of your choosing. With just a few taps, you can take your broadcast from a solo event to a group one. Check it out: pic.twitter.com/kgBTX0gKwD

According to Twitter, users will be able to allow up to three guests to call into an ongoing live video broadcast, making it easier for the guests to do things like ask the broadcaster questions or just have a conversation about them. Viewers of the livestream will only be able to hear the audio of the guests once they’re added to the broadcast.
We’ve learned how valuable the audio experience is for people to discuss topics they care about, because when you can chat live together, it’s more fun! We’re thinking about ways we can add video for guests too, so stay tuned.
To allow guests to join a live video, simply tap on the icon with two smiley faces and then tap again on the plus sign to add someone to a livestream.
