There hasn’t been a significant update to Periscope on iOS for a while, and we were starting to worry. But we have finally the update that we’ve been waiting for. You can now find recent streams easily on the map.

Just update your iOS app (Android users got the update earlier in the week) to see what I’m talking about. On the streams map, you will now see all streams, plus other replays from the past 24 hours in your chosen region.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
Any time you zoom into a different region you will see all the current broadcasts and all replays from the last 24 hours. Broadcasts in red – replays in blue. Another new feature is that you click and drag left or right through replays, essentially scrubbing through them or skipping altogether. Dragging your finger up or down changes the speed at which you can scrub.
In the new iPhones – 6s and 6s Plus, 3D touch gives you some neat extras – start private broadcasts for mutual followers, teleport to a random stream, or search for users. The new features are also available on Android, without the 3D touch options.
