Periscope now lets users sketch over live streams

You can now draw your own face over your face, or draw clothes on yourself in Periscope. Pericope's new doodling feature, which it began testing earlier this month, is now available for iOS, The Next Web reports.

During a live broadcast, users can just tap the screen and click "sketch" to begin. If this feature feels familiar to you, it's probably because you can already do the same thing on Snapchat. This means Periscope's parent company Twitter is likely thinking about ways to replicate its competitors' successes. But Periscope's not the only company borrowing features from rival social networks. Facebook is also aggressively embracing live video, and its live streams, like Periscope's, feature heart reactions, a live map, and commenting.

Periscope also recently added viewer graphs for iOS, so users could see how many people watched their streams live and how many people replayed them.
