Android handsets crash far more regularly than iPhones, a new study by the Blanco Technology Group claims.

Now you can stream live from your drone when you take to the skies with Periscope, Twitter’s service that lets you broadcast live video, provided you have the app on iOS and a DJI drone.

In addition to live drone streaming, Periscope is also rolling out a new search function that will let you look for specific live streams and saved broadcasts. You’ll be able to search for topics or hashtags with the new system.

A save function, currently in beta, is also expected to arrive in a few weeks.
