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.
Indians have embraced Periscope over the past year as live video broadcasts have become part of the community. A first-time look at Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s world on his birthday (@iamsrk), Arvind Kejriwal’s live speeches (@ArvindKejriwal), watching the Indian Cricket Team as they trained ahead of their match against Pakistan for #WT20 (@BCCI), a front-row seat at the IIFA Utsavam Awards (@IIFAUtsavam), watching AR Rahman live in concert, food blogger Kalyan Karmakar’s (FinelyChopped) first featured food Periscope from India, going behind-the-scenes to chat with the Jodis on Nachi Baliye (@StarPlus), to some of our early adopters of Periscope such as stand-up comic Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) and DJ Anish Sood (@anishsood) - Indians love Periscope.
Cheers to a great first year!
