Qik rolls out live video streaming for Google Android

My T-Mobile G1 is my preferred T-Mobile device and it just gets better and better all the time with more developers supporting the Google Android platform. The latest software/service available for the Android devices is Qik mobile video streaming application. iPhone users cannot say, "There's an app for that." since Apple still does not allow video streaming with Qik. I have been using Qik a bit lately on my Nokia N97 because it allows me to simultaneously upload videos I take to Facebook and YouTube, as well as my Qik site. The Qik Android alpha requires a device with firmware 1.5 (aka Cupcake) and a microSD card.

Features in the current alpha release include:

  • Live streaming with live chat
  • Share videos to Twitter, Facebook, YouTube
  • Ability to set your videos to Private / Public with a touch of a button
  • Add Title / Description to the video prior

That is quite a feature list for an alpha release and I am quite pleased with the support for Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube right out of the gate. I am downloading it right now onto my T-Mobile G1 to give it a whirl. Now I just need to find a good T-Mobile 3G connection because those are still difficult to find.
