Twitter Tests Periscope Button on iOS

Twitter wants more people to use the streaming service Periscope and to make that happen, the micro-blogger has started a test on iOS. Some users of the iOS app from Twitter has been seeing a new Periscope button in recent days, which is visible when composing a new tweet.

However, the company started to test the feature on Android with some select users since last month.

The feature lets users initiate a real-time broadcast directly from the Twitter app without having to jump into the company’s live-streaming video service Periscope.


More clearly, when a user wants to write a tweet, he had always been able to add a photo, video or GIF, but the group users who are under the test program, now can also go live streaming directly through clicking one “Go Live” button. However, an employee of the company has said that the Periscope button is expected to be made visible to everyone in the next few months.

“A few weeks ago we rolled out a ‘Go Live’ button in Twitter to a small percentage of Android users. We’re beginning to roll this out to a small group of iOS users. Over time, everyone will have the ability to start a Periscope broadcast from Twitter.”

He said.


Twitter’s Periscope battling hard with competitor Meerkat over the past year, but the company seems to have difficulty in expanding the number of users. Recently, Twitter also came into disrepute because a French girl has live broadcasted her suicide via Periscope. And, the prevention of such live streams is still almost impossible.
