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.

The core features of both the iOS and Android versions of Periscope remain the same, but there are indeed a few tiny differences in both the apps. Prime among them is the fact that the newly released variant is built along the Material Design guidelines prescribed by Google.

Android users interested in trying out Periscope can head over to the Google Play store and download it onto their devices now. It’s accessible only to those having Android 4.4 KitKat and up.
