Twitter finally released its Android version of Periscope on Google Play.   Periscope is Twitter’s response to Meerkat, which allows users to stream live video for others to login to watch.  There were multiple reports of Periscope and Meerkat users who streamed the Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight to thousands of users, so they could avoid the 100 dollar pay-per-view charge.  In addition to live-streaming, broadcasters can make the video available for replay if your followers cannot watch your feed live.  Users will also have the ability to keep live videos private, making sure your video is only seen by the people you choose.  And since Periscope is from Twitter, you can easily share your feed via a Twitter post.

In order to take advantage of live streaming video through the Periscope app, users will need a device running Android 4.4 kit Kat at a minimum.
