Twitter’s live streaming service Periscope is testing a feature that allows streamers to doodle annotations over their broadcast in real-time.

The new feature, which is currently being tested in the beta version of the app, allows streamers to draw across their feeds.

Three differently coloured doodles could be used to highlight and annotate data and items on the feed, increasing how dynamic Twitter’s live streaming offering can be.

The feature was tested by The Next Web’s Matt Navarra.
