Twitter has just launched its live stream video app, Periscope, to complete with Meerkat, but the only issue is that at the moment it’s only available for iOS. Periscope will be available for Android soon, but there is no word about a Windows Phone app.
Luckily, an unofficial app called “Telescope” has quickly emerged for Windows Phone devices, long before the official app for Android.
Here is the twist, with Telescope, you can sign-in to Periscope, follow users, and watch broadcasts, but currently you cannot start your own live stream.
It’s not a complete solution, but the developer said it’s working on an update to add the capability for users to start their own live streams. This is obviously not a solution that Windows Phone users want to hear, but it’s something that should work until Twitter decides to build a version of the app for Windows users.
Features roadmap include: search for users, edit settings, profile view, hearts and messages, and, as I mentioned, broadcast.
