Editors’ Choice

Periscope offers live broadcasts with a twist—the ability to replay them at any time. Every video comes to life with a league of integrated social features: while watching streams, you’ll also see people join, leave hearts, comment in real time, and more. The app makes it super-simple to set your privacy settings too, so you’ll always know who you’re broadcasting to—whether it’s a small group of friends or the whole world.

Great app🙂


I have this app on my iPhone, and I think it’s great. I don’t get on that much but when I do it’s always fun. Whether I’m watching or streaming. The only thing is, I understand that if I leave the whole window the video will end. That’s fine. But I can’t even answer a text without it ending.
I’ve seen people who stream hands free, and it’s obviously not their phone they’re using because they usually have their phone next to them. So I assumed that maybe they were using a laptop or something. Until I looked at the app here I didn’t realize it wasn’t compatible with my Mac. I thought using my laptop would be so much easier so I could use my phone and not worry about accidentally ending the video.
I don’t have an iPad or any of that, so I mean I COULD get one... but it’s not something I can afford, and I already have a laptop with a camera on it.
So if you guys could make the app compatible with laptops, that’d be GREAT.
(I’d just say Mac since you already support most apple products, but it’d be nice for people not using a Mac too. I know programming and stuff is hard, so, No pressure!)

App is ok but too many people with issues use it


I am in total agreement with the previous users comment from Nov 28. The app is ok, but all too often I click on what I may think will turn out to be an interesting live scope to watch and find that it’s either someone doing a strip show, sometimes soliciting money, and the most common thing I see is people doing drugs live on camera. I have used the app less than 6 months and have lost count of how many times I have seen people live suddenly they pull out drugs and either smoke weed, crack, or meth right on camera for the world to watch. I doubt the app was designed for this trash. If they want their friends to watch them do drugs from far away they need to go to skype or FaceTime because the entire rest of the world doesn’t care to see it. Sure those people may need help but someone watching them live in chat is not going to be able to convince them of that while they’re doing the drugs.
