After its successful launch on iOS devices, the Periscope app has finally arrived to Android devices today. Owners of recent Android devices with version 4.4 (KitKat) and above can start downloading the Periscope app from Google Play. This app lets people broadcast easily from their smartphones. Still, many companies are figuring out the proper use of this service. Just today, Nintendo used Periscope stating it will use this service for their E3 broadcast as well.
According to Periscope, the Android version offers new and unique features to the app:
- 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” (when somebody you follow on Twitter broadcasts on Periscope for the first time) and “Share notifications” (when somebody you follow on Periscope shares somebody else’s broadcast).
- Periscope on Android offers you a “Resume notification” so you can keep watching where you left off in case your broadcast gets interrupted (by a phone call or message)
- Replays are saved without requiring the broadcaster to upload a file. This should save broadcasters lots of time and preserve precious mobile data allowance!
