Twitter Adds Periscope Button to iOS, Android Apps

Twitter reminded its users that Facebook Live is far from the only live-video streaming option, adding a Periscope button to its iOS and Android applications.

Twitter reminded its users that Facebook Live is far from the only live-video streaming option, adding a Periscope button to its iOS and Android applications.

Mashable reported that Twitter began testing the new button “with a small percentage” of Android users in May, extending that test to iOS earlier this month.

Twitter announced the new feature in a tweet (embedded below):

Users of Twitter’s iOS and Android apps can now add photos or videos to their tweets, or add live videos via Periscope, and those who have not yet installed the Periscope app will be prompted to do so.

Twitter users: What do you think of the new Periscope button?
