Qik arrives on Android

24 Jun 2009

Live streaming video mobile service Qik has just arrived for devices running on the Google-developed Android operating system.

This early alpha version of Qik is available right now to download from Android Marketplace, and allows for live streaming video with live chat on an Android handset such as the T-Mobile G1.

Qik on Android also has instant video sharing straight to YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, as well as one-touch switching between public and private mode.

“We’ve been evaluating and looking to develop an Android app once the platform enabled video-capturing with Cupcake 1.5,” said Bhaskar Roy, co-founder of Qik.

Qik is the official live video service for Nokia’s Symbian handsets and is preloaded on the flagship N97 smartphone, as well as being integrated with Nokia’s Ovi Share video and photo-sharing portal.
