Twitter’s Periscope Lets You Livestream Your World

Twitter’s Periscope Lets You Livestream Your World

Periscope is a name that hardly needs any introduction today. This app allows you to live stream yourself over the internet anywhere and anytime. This app is now owned by Twitter and can be used on iOS and Android devices. As long as you have the internet connection, you can live stream your world from your mobile device. You could be surfing over the mighty waves of an ocean or just driving along the road, you can create a broadcast for yourself. If you are having a birthday party at home and want the world to see it, Periscope is the app for you. But, that is not it. You can use periscope to see the broadcast of the other people as well as long as they have made their broadcast public.

Periscope already has millions of subscribers and the number is only increasing every day. You must have noticed that going live has become a recent trend on social media. People are going live on Facebook and other social media platforms. It is not just the celebrities that are going live but also the normal people like us who love to broadcast their world to the world.

While Periscope is available only for mobile devices, there is a workaround to get Periscope for computer as well. You will need to install an Android emulator, like BlueStacks, for this purpose.

Your Periscope broadcasts could be public as well as private. The public broadcast is the one that anyone can see whether or not they are in your list. However, if you want to limit the broadcast only to a specific set of people, you can make it private. The broadcast videos are saved only for 24 hours after which they are deleted from the server automatically.

You need to download the app on your mobile device and then create a log in. Although Periscope is now owned by Twitter, they still have different log in credentials. However, you can use Twitter login to log in to this app. In fact, you can also use Facebook login for the same purpose.
