periscopePeriscope has just introduced a brand new update to its iOS app, and in this particular update, there will be a mute feature in order to prevent you from being disturbed by whoever is broadcasting live all the time. The ability to mute someone does not mean that they are taken off your “following” list, and you can still be on the receiving end of their live feeds. However, you will no longer need to receive notifications whenever this muted person begins to “broadcast”.

Sounds pretty useful, don’t you think so? This particular update will bump the version number of Periscope up to version 1.1.3, where you will also be able to set your language preferences accordingly. This will then determine just which broadcast will appear on your global list, and this update also lets you check out viewer statistics whenever one is watching previous broadcasts. For those who happen to be watching a Periscope broadcast on a device that runs on iOS 8, you can easily make the switch to another iOS 8 device in order to complete watching the remainder of the broadcast. Of course, this will be made possible as long as both devices will have their Bluetooth connection turned on, and are using the very same iCloud account.

Periscope is also available on Android, just in case you were wondering.
