Dear Periscope Community,
Today marks one year since we released Periscope to the world. We’ve come a long way since then and we have you, our community, to thank.
We’re proud of what we’ve built together and we’re excited to share just how far we’ve come. As of today, over 200 million broadcasts have been created on Periscope and over 110 years of live video are watched every day on iOS and Android* (Read more here about why we value “Time Watched” as a metric).
For everyone who joined us along the way, we hope this reaffirms that you are a part of something bigger. Thank you for making Periscope a vibrant global community – it means everything to us.
Australians have embraced Periscope over the past year as live video broadcasts have become part of the community.
Whether it’s getting a front row seat on the @myer runway as they launch their new fashion season, cheering on Paralympian @kurtfearnley from starting line to victorious finish at the Blackmores Wheelchair Marathon, or taking an underwater adventure with intrepid traveller @mitchoates as he broadcasts the world’s first underwater and surfing Periscopes - Australians love Periscope.
Cheers to a great first year!
* Time Watched represents the total amount of time spent watching live broadcasts on Periscope for iOS & Android. It does not include time spent watching through Periscope broadcasts in Twitter, on the web at periscope.tv, or replays.
