Periscope App Now Available For Android – With More Features than iOS version
Well the wait is over, we finally have the live broadcasting Periscope app for Android. For now, the Android version has more features than that of iOS. Oh, that looks like the long wait has finally paid off.
It has always been the case that every app comes first on iOS and Android users have to wait. And even when the Android versions come, never has it happened that it looked better than iOS.
For starters the app for Android has the following features that iOS version does not, according to Periscope’s blog.
Android users have more kinds of push notifications, such as for rebroadcasts and first broadcasts (and they can turn more of them off). They can also be alerted (or not alerted) when someone they follow on Twitter broadcasts for the first time, or when someone they follow shares a Periscope stream.
If you got a call during a broadcast you were digging, on Android, it’s easy to restart the video where you were interrupted.
Replays are saved on the server, so Android users won’t have to upload them.
Periscope is like a private live streaming system which is owned by Twitter. While the users are broadcasting live, this app lets them receive text based message affirmations from viewers. It often has animations.
According to Google, Periscope has been downloaded between 100,000 and 500,000 (from the day it is available on market) on several Android devices via Google Play. According to the post, the app is designed based on Google’s style, in short it was ‘inspired by’ the Google look.
