When Twitter launched Periscope at the end of March, it was only available for iOS users. Now the Twitter-owned live-streaming app is finally available for Android devices.

Anyone with an Android device using KitKat 4.4 or higher can now download Periscope for free from Google Play, the company announced in a post on Medium Tuesday.

The Android version of the app has a few features that differ from its iOS counterpart. In addition to some slight differences in design, the Android version of the app also offers more advanced push notification settings, allowing you to be notified when someone you follow on Twitter broadcasts on Periscope for the first time or when someone you follow on Periscope shares another user's broadcast. The Android app also allows you to resume an interrupted broadcast where you left off and save replays without the broadcaster having to upload the file again.

Of course, Periscope for Android also has many features that were launched with the iOS version of the app, including the ability to create a public or private broadcast, the option to enable comments from just the users you follow and communicating with other broadcasters through chat.

Periscope officially launched on March 26 after being acquired by Twitter for a reported $100 million in January. One million users signed in to the app in the first 10 days after its launch.
