The live streaming app Meerkat has steadily been gaining popularity and as its user base increases the app gets new features. Cementing its move away from Twitter, the latest update for Meerkat on iOS brings support for Facebook. For users this means that they can now directly push Meerkat alerts to the world’s largest social network.

An interesting change to note in this update is Meerkat coming out from under Twitter’s shadow. Users no longer need to sign in with a Twitter account, if they choose to do so they can very well sign in through Facebook login.

The latest update for Meerkat also adds address book scanning which will allow users to instantly brings friends on to the service as long as they let the app scan their contacts.

Meerkat has enough reason to move away from Twitter, given that the micro-blogging network first cut off access to its social graph data and then launched Periscope, it’s own live streaming rival. Periscope has since become more popular than Meerkat.

Meerkat’s latest update also brings minor changes, for example popular streams are now promoted to the app’s front page and the app also gets emoji support. Whenever users select an emoji their profile image will be changed to the emoji they selected for a short time.

Things are heating up in the music streaming arena since the market is being hotly contested by services willing to get a piece of the pie. Google is just one of the many companies that are running a music streaming service and now the company has decided to double the free trial period for its unlimited Play Music All Access service. New users will now be able to try the service for two months with no charge.

Previously new users received a one month free Play Music All Access trial before their card was charged, or they decided to not pay for the service.

Google’s latest move allows users to use the service without any charge for two full months, they’ll be able to access the entire song library that hosts more than 30 million tracks.

Users won’t have to put up with advertisements and they will be able to stream and skip as many songs on demand as they want.

This deal appears to be only valid in certain regions and only for new users, but North America is covered so there’s nothing to worry about on that front. Once the two month free trial ends users can choose to pay $9.99 per month to continue the subscription or they can opt to not pay and thus stop using Google Play Music All Access.
