You can get Periscope free on the Google Play Store.

Periscope is now available for Android.

Periscope is now available for Android.

Periscope enables users to start or watch a live video broadcast.

Android owners using Version 4.4 (KitKat) and above can download Periscope from Google Play.

Periscope on Android has all the same core features of the existing Periscope:

  • start a public or private broadcast.
  • choose to allow comments from just those you follow.
  • interact with a broadcaster by chatting or sending hearts.

There are a few things that are 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” (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).
  • Periscope on Android makes it easy to resume where you left off.
  • Replays are saved without requiring the broadcaster to upload a file. This should save broadcasters lots of time and preserve precious mobile data allowance!
