Google Glass gets Livestream app, lets users stream video directly
Livestream, the video streaming startup, has announced the launch of its new Livestream Google Glass application at the National Association of Broadcasters show.

The Livestream application for Google Glass now lets users launch the streaming with just a voice command (Ok Glass: Livestream) and a click of a button on the Glass. It is the first third-party app developed to specifically livestream video from Glass. Previously, Glass featured a live video streaming platform via Google Hangouts.

The Livestream app also allows the user (while shooting the stream) to interact with the people following the stream. It lets them comment and user can see a pop up at the bottom of Glass. User can also post the stream directly to their Facebook Feed while creating it. The app also allows Glass wearers to stream video directly to their Livestream channel and the company says that it will soon work within Livestream's existing broadcast architecture.

To pair the Google Glass app with the user's Livestream account, the user will need to scan a QR code (found on the event pages of the Livestream website) using their Google Glass. The company says this pairing feature will soon be available via its Android and iOS apps.

"It's a balance between privacy and journalism," said Phil Worthington, Livestream co-founder and chief product officer.

"Yes, maybe there are privacy concerns, but I think the information it shares with the world is much more valuable than that. Our mission is to democratize live video broadcasting, so this is the best step in our revolution. We want to be on every device possible," Worthington added.

While the app enables users to endlessly create hands-free live streaming video from their face using Google Glass, the device certainly has limitations for sure, like the battery.
