Periscope Adds Web Profiles for Live Streamers

Social live streaming platform Periscope just made it easier to find and revisit broadcasts outside of its own app: Each and every Periscope user now has a home on the web that includes a basic profile as well as any active and recently-concluded live streams.

“We think it’s really important for broadcasters to have a home on the web, and today’s launch is just the beginning,” the company explained in a blog post.

Periscope officially launched in March as a mobile-only live streaming app for iPhones. It followed up with an Android app in May, and added the ability to watch replays of past broadcasts on the desktop in June. Periscope still only keeps archived live streams for 24 hours, which means that the new web profiles only feature the most recent content of any broadcaster.

Periscope announced in August that it had surpassed 10 million registered users, and that it was streaming more than 350,000 hours of video every single day.
