“We’ve seen incredible growth on Periscope during the past year,” said Periscope CEO and co-founder Kayvon Beykpour. “It’s hard to keep up with all of the live content shared by Periscope broadcasters around the world. So we built a way to easily watch automatically generated highlights of each broadcast. We’ve also made it easy for publishers to embed playable broadcasts anywhere on the web. We often see articles reference specific Periscopes with screenshots or manual recordings. Now, publishers can easily embed the Periscope itself by simply embedding a tweet.”
Periscope is a free app available for iOS and Android users.
