Twitter’s live video streaming app Periscope is being launched on Google’s Android platform, exactly two months after its debut in the Apple store in March.
Rival streaming app Meerkat has been available for download on Google’s Play store since the beginning of May.
Twitter acquired Periscope in January 2015. It claims there were more than a million downloads of the Apple version of the app during its first week.
Both apps offer a live broadcasting service via mobile phone. Those watching can show their appreciation and send messages which pop up on screen during the stream.
