The feature is now available to all users as part of a public beta test. The CEO Kayvon Beykpour said that
Periscope had been “actively building support for controlling how your broadcasts stay” on the platform, including keeping broadcasts for longer than the previous 24-hour window, but also to service “some people who want their broadcasts to be deleted more quickly.”
According to it’s CEO Kayvon Beykpour they plan to eventually
“build better native control for permanently displaying broadcasts, including the option to decide something should be permanent after your broadcast ends.”.
