How do I watch a broadcast?

Last Updated: May 30, 2018 11:25AM PDT

You can watch Periscope broadcasts on Periscope or Twitter on iOS, Android or web.

On Periscope, the Watch Tab is where you go to watch live broadcasts and replays from users you follow, recently featured broadcasts, and broadcasts shared with you.

You can go to the Watch Tab by clicking the TV icon located on the far left of your control panel.

Featured broadcasts will show up at the top of the Watch Tab. To hide featured broadcasts from your feed, tap the three dot icon in the upper right of your screen and select Hide Featured Broadcasts. To unhide featured broadcasts, go to your profile > Settings > Channel Preferences > Hidden Channels and tap Featured Broadcasts.

Broadcasts shared with you by the users you follow or through your groups will appear in this feed with an indicator above the broadcast title showing who shared it with you.

Live broadcasts will autoplay in the Watch Tab and Global Feed without sound on iOS and Android.

On iOS, you can use audio docking to listen to a broadcast. Audio docking allows you to listen to Periscope broadcasts when you’ve turned your screen off or you’re using other apps. Audio only streams also use less data, so you can switch to audio docking when your network connection is not strong enough to support video streams. You can turn on audio docking in your Periscope settings.
