Periscope, the Twitter-owned livestreaming app that has taken the world by storm in recent months, is coming to Android.
Previously available only on iOS devices, the livestreaming app is now available in the Google Play store two months after first arriving for iPhone.
Periscope lets users livestream video content to their followers directly from a mobile device. It’s become popular for journalists and experts to do video chats, and for people at big events like political rallies or sporting events to show followers what’s going down on the scene.
Twitter announced its purchase of Periscope only weeks after a similar app called Meerkat launched to much fanfare among the tech press and early adopters.
The Verge notes that the features of the new app are pretty similar to those available on the iOS version.
