Meerkat coming to Android, signup as a beta tester now
Meerkat is a social media, which links to your Twitter and lets you stream video from your phone to friends and strangers alike. Does this sound familiar? Twitter recently launched its own Meerkat competitor – Periscope – which instantly became quite popular and users are migrating over due to the supposedly better integration with Twitter services.
Both Meerkat and Periscope are available only for iOS and it makes us wonder if the arrival of Twitter's own streaming app was the catalyst that pushed Meerkat developers to announce the Android beta. Whatever the reason, we'd say – about time!
