Periscope, the live video streaming application acquired by Twitter in March 2015 has launched on Android, the company announced today (26 May 2015).
The app supports devices running Android 4.4 “KitKat”, and is available in Google Play.
“Periscope on Android has all the same core features that Periscope users have come to love: start a public or private broadcast, choose to allow comments from just those you follow, and interact with a broadcaster by chatting or sending hearts,” Periscope said.
However, there are also a few aspects unique to Android:
- The application features a Material-inspired design that should feel “familiar but modern” to Android users.
- Android users have granular control over additional Push Notification settings, such as “First Time Broadcast notifications”, and “Share notifications”.
- Periscope on Android has a “Resume notification”, which lets you continue a broadcast where you left off in case it gets interrupted by a phone call or message.
