Twitter Adds Live Video to iOS, Android Apps

Posted by @DanHinmon, Dec 15, 2016

Twitter announced Wednesday that users of its iOS and Android applications can now create and tweet Periscope-powered live videos directly via their apps.

To go live, compose a tweet, and then tap “Live” which brings you to a pre-broadcast screen where you can frame your shot. When you’re ready, press “Go Live” to start broadcasting.

Once you’re live, anyone on Twitter and Periscope can join your live video and participate in your experience. When you’re watching a live video, comment and send hearts by tapping the screen. Hearts show your support for the broadcaster.

If you don’t see the option on your phone yet, be patient. The new feature is rolling out in the next few days.
