Periscope teaser 001

Periscope, Twitter’s live video-streaming app, has been refreshed in the App Store this morning with a few new features related to in-app camera, sharing and more. For starters, you’ll notice improved tap-to-focus while broadcasting live video, plus you can now follow a broadcaster from the viewers list with one tap. There are also improvements to Persicope’s VIP Program and more.

Other new features in Periscope 1.7.5 for iOS include the ability to retweet the broadcaster’s original tweet when sharing a live broadcast, new badges on profiles that help identify broadcasters who are in the Periscope VIP Program, and a new icon next to the name and comments of broadcasters you follow, making it easier to identify them.
