Live broadcast app Periscope now available on Android

Months after it initially launched, on the iOS app obviously, the live broadcast app Periscope has now finally arrived on Android. Unlike their comeptitor Meerkat, which came to this platform stage by stage from testing to beta to full, they have released the fully functional (hopefully) version their first time around. Through the app, you can watch and record live broadcasts that you can share with the world or you can share only to those that you want to see your recorded event.

Google adds Tweets on mobile app search results

Meerkat is now officially out of beta for Android

We still haven't heard a peep from Twitter's Periscope since they said they're working on it (that was last month), but its arch rival Meerkat is several steps ahead of them in the Android market. Just a few hours ago, they announced that the live video streaming app is finally out of beta and is officially live on the Google Play Store. The developers have been pretty fast in moving the app from the testing stage to beta and out of it in just a span of a few weeks.

Meerkat is once again, one step ahead of its main competitor, Twitter's Periscope when it comes to getting into the Android market. Just two weeks after the live video streaming service opened up its doors for beta testers, they have now released the official beta version, available for all Android users through the Google Play Store. Meanwhile, Periscope has not yet announced anything official about moving on to Android, despite assurances that they will be on the platform soon.

Waze’s Unusual Traffic informs you of traffic problems in your area

If you live in an area where high vehicular traffic during rush hour is a common occurrence, then you already know to adjust your leaving time to it. But what of those unexpected moments when there's a huge pile up on the highway or when a road construction is causing unusual traffic in your area? While the Waze app does a good job of sometimes letting you know of things like that, they thought of another more organized way to do it: Waze Unusual Traffic.

Twitter Highlights gives you the best tweets that you may have missed

Twitter is a really great source of news, useless information, new online discoveries, and yes, even conversations with friends. But with the amount of people that you follow, and with the limited amount of time (we assume) that you have for checking on your various social networks, some things may be lost in the void. Twitter is introducing a new feature called Highlights that will make you get the best out of the micro-blogging site and it is also personalized according to what you need or want to see.

Twitter revises policies and procedures for abusive tweets/accounts

Social media is both a boon and a bane to humanity for so many reasons. And while it is indeed interesting and fun to go on Twitter, read updates and opinions, and start conversations, a lot of times we encounter abusive tweets and users, whether directed at us or those that we see thrown at other people. Twitter is now introducing new policies and procedures to curb abusive tweets and to punish those who are sending said tweets.

Twitter releases new free-for-all DM settings (if you want to)

While it is fun to have public conversations on social media, there are some discussions that need to be taken to a more private setting. And if that convo you're having is on Twitter, your best recourse is Direct Messaging. But what if the person/entity is not following you or you're not following them? An awkward "Please follow me" is not great to see on your timeline. Good thing Twitter has now changed the way we can use DMs for a (hopefully) better interaction.

Meerkat live video streaming service now accepting Android beta testers

It's shaping up to be an almost battle between the live video streaming services. Twitter just recently launched their own service called Periscope, but they weren't the first one out the door. Meerkat caught mobile users' attention when it made its debut at the recent South by Southwest (SXSW) tech and arts festival in Austin. People thought that Twitter's entry into that still very small market will mean Meerkat will go away meekly. But don't count them out, as they have just announced that they are opening their Android beta for testers.
