I was like those guys, “Why would I ever need a live streaming app for Android, I’m a private person!” That all changed when I had to live stream a wedding to relatives on Skype. Let me tell you, it was a nightmare to do so.
Thankfully just before I was about to cry with frustration, a good friend of mine suggested live streaming the proceedings. I promptly downloaded the app and started broadcasting the wedding with ease! I even placed my phablet in the shallow front pocket of my coat and didn’t even have to use my hands. At one point 3 different streams were being broadcasted of the same wedding, it was truly one amazing experience, especially for family living abroad.
However, there is always a catch in pitches sounding too good to be true. Likewise, the best live streaming apps for Android all come with some minor annoyances. But almost all of them have the tendency to crash after extended usage.
I would recommend that you stream in 30-minute sessions as the smartphones tend to get hot under this much duress. Also, only use top of the line devices for live streaming purposes, the mid to low end will simply crash immediately or won’t even launch the app.
Note: The 5 best live streaming apps for Android were tested on a Samsung Galaxy Note III smartphone. This mid-range ex-flagship worked well considering the load these apps put on the hardware. There were crashes faced with each of the apps at one point or another, but they were very rare. I noticed a direct relation between the smartphone getting hot and the app crashing, so I would advise that you either use a latest flagship or broadcast in small bursts. All of the apps in the list require an active, stable and good internet connection to work.
What if you don’t want to stream real life from your smartphone?
Maybe you want to stream a smartphone videogame to the world and show your thumb-skills. Mirrativ has the right answer for you; this is a great app that allows you to mirror your Android screen and broadcast it to the viewers. This feature is a god send for troubleshooting and tutorials. I will be using this app to pin point what my relatives are having trouble with their Android and help them in minutes instead of wasting hours.
The app has a great feature set which is essential in streaming screens. While all the other live streaming apps on the list have rigid buttons on the screen, this one allows you to move them with ease. I had a great time with the app but there were some problems as well.
You cannot stream a resource heavy title on mid-range devices. I tried to run GTA San Andreas and stream it but the app simply crashed. It might have to do something with the RAM usage but I’m not sure.
This concludes the best live streaming apps for Android list. I know there are a few more available on the Google Play Store, but they all crashed either instantly or when starting the streams for me. I highly recommend that you install at least 2 of the apps from this list and keep them on the phone in case the other starts acting up.
So, what do you seek in a live streaming app? And most importantly, what will you stream when you get these apps?
