Since Twitter has really integrated video into its main app, many thought that the Periscope app was actually gone and dead. You can still install it from the Play Store and use it to watch live video. However, according to Jane Manchun Wong who did some digging through the Twitter app code, it looks like the app is going to be closed down fairly soon.

Now it’s important to note that just because it is mentioned in the code, doesn’t mean it’s happening very soon. It might even be 2021 before Twitter actually announces that it is closing down Periscope.

Amid the expansion of its video/audio features in the Twitter app – Fleets will replace it with livestreaming and stories features.
