Aside from broadcasters, who use the app to film their activities, users of Periscope have long requested the option to skip through video replays of broadcasts. The new update will allow users to do exactly that via fast-forward and rewind functionalities. At present, iOS users will have to wait a week or so for the update, according to Periscope.
To use the new functions, simply deploy your finger to long-press your Android device’s screen during video replays, which will then cause the broadcast to miniaturize and bring up a time-stamp at the bottom of the screen. You can then drag your finger along the time-stamp bar to skip back and forth throughout the video. The Web version also now allows you to click on any point of the broadcast on the scrubber bar – again allowing you to fast-forward and rewind to your desired position.
