Select Adobe users who have access to the company’s Fresco digital painting and drawing app are currently testing a new live-streaming feature that enables them to broadcast their work in real-time. The live-streaming feature was announced at the Adobe Max conference and recently detailed by The Verge, which reports that Adobe views this as a way to make creators and its products go ‘viral.’
The live-streaming feature will be built into Adobe Creative Cloud apps, according to the company’s Chief Product Officer Scott Belsky. With it, users will be able to launch a live stream of their session and share a link with others either privately or on social media platforms. Viewers will have the ability to leave comments during the stream.
Other details, such as which live-streaming platforms will be supported and which Creative Cloud apps will get the feature, remain unclear at this time. Only select users have access to the beta feature in Adobe Fresco; the company hasn’t provided a time frame for when it plans to deploy the feature for all users.
