Description

Thank you to everyone in the Periscope community for sharing the world through your eyes these past five years. We’re so grateful to all of you who put your heart and soul into making Periscope the place to show what’s happening in your world, creating vibrant communities and making the app what it was. The Periscope mobile app will be discontinued on March 31, 2021, but live video will live on as an important part of the conversation on Twitter.

Until then, you can:
• Instantly share your live videos to Twitter and other social networks.
• Download your broadcasts on periscope.tv
• Give and receive Super Hearts to support your favorite broadcasters before March 31, 2021.

Periscope users will be able to move to Twitter and broadcast using Twitter Live. Additionally, Brands, publishers and creators can go live on Twitter by using the Twitter Media Studio. People will also still be able to create broadcasts programmatically through the Periscope public API, which will also be migrating to the Twitter API in 2021.

Best live stream!

There are many live streams but Periscope is unique! Not really a fan of IG Live from what I can see Periscope is still better.
One request I really feel Periscope just consider especially now that we have audio broadcasts is allowing the video to still play in the background even when you exit the app the way podcasts do on your phone. It’s annoying to not be able to multitask and have to only keep the periscope app open to listen to content on there. Also if there would be a better way to block phone calls and texts from disrupting the video so it doesn’t end before you’re finished.

Really enjoying periscope.

• Periscope via the Twitter Apple TV app. I just wish there were more features on the tv app like there is to the phone app. I would love to give stars, I would love to type in a question, etc in the tv app. But the tv app has a spinning globe UI feature which is really nice. It needs to be updated control wise. It it’s my favorite feature.

• The stand alone Periscope app terrible for discovery. Content is organized more by weird uninteresting topics instead of by country or people you follow. And most of the videos that have recently stopped broadcasting still show up as “offline”. Once a video has stopped streaming get rid of it immediately fill the space with a new one along the lines of the users preferences. I think Twitter should move the earth globe UI to the main stand alone Periscope app.

In all it’s a cool app just wish it wasn’t so schizophrenic, and that it had a more modern and tighter UI experience.

NEEDS A PAUSE STREAM FEATURE

whenever I am streaming and I get a phone call it ends the stream. there should be a feature that pauses it automatically instead of ending it, like on Instagram. that and there should be an option to let people go live with you with video. right now it’s only audio that they can broadcast when they join your live. The broadcaster should be able to control whether they can show themselves or not.

On top of all that, it would be cool to have the option of visual effects such as filters and text, even links that people can click on would be amazing.

Lastly, give the option to submit questions that the broadcaster can show on the screen such as Instagram. All this would immensely improve the app. I love it other than all this, but the primary focus should be the pause option so nothing can end the broadcast and lose all your viewers.
