Live Streaming App Meerkat opens Android public beta

Last updated:

Popular live streaming app, Meerkat, has opened its public beta and is allowing Android users to access the beta version of the Android app.

To sign up, you need to head over to a Google Form and enter your name, Twitter handle, and email. There is no word on how many beta testers the program is open to or how long it will take for you to get accepted.

Meerkat is a social media, which links to your Twitter and lets you stream video from your phone to friends and strangers alike.

It became a virtual overnight sensation since its low-key arrival on Apple’s online App Store in February, but its popularity has been slowing down since Twitter introduced its immediate rival Periscope last month.
The company’s move to bring the app to Android before Periscope might help it gain an edge over Periscope.

Both Meerkat and Periscope are currently available only for iOS.
