Meerkat (Beta) Launches Live Streaming App For Android

Posted By: Super

    Live video streaming app Meerkat beat Twitter's own Periscope to market on iOS, and now it's available on Android for all, with no Periscope app for Google's mobile OS to be seen.

    The Meerkat app for Android carries a "Beta" label, as did a previous version that was locked down only to a select group of invitees, but it doesn't appear to have that many limitations in terms of device options, and the core feature list is fairly complete relative to the iOS version.

    Meerkat lets you login using your Twitter account and stream videos instantly for your follower on Twitter by sharing a web link. When your followers have the app, they will also get pushed notified with your live stream, watch, comment and interact with it using the app. You can save your streams to your phone, but Meerkat will never keep them, says the company.

    Once the stream has ended, you can't watch it again. Since this is the first beta version of the app, there might be some bugs and the user interface is not as polished as its iPhone app, but these are expected to be improved in future versions of the app.

    Though Periscope has been growing in mindshare, and the Meerkat buzz has subsided somewhat, the fact that Meerkat is now available on Android could give it a big boost as it looks to make good on its $14 million funding.
