Live.ly Android Release

The Live.ly Android app is MIA on the Google Play Store. When Musical.ly first arrived on the scene it was on the iPhone only and then it hit Android and Amazon later.

We expect that there will be a Live.ly Android release date in the works so that users who are on Android can go Live on Musical.ly but the company has not shared any details yet.

Live Moments vs Live On Musical.ly

Musical.ly announced a new Live Moments feature on iPhone and Android recently, which is different than going live on Musical.ly with the Live.ly app.

Live Moments create a gif-like short that you can share with others. There is a special tab on the home page that highlights these.

Going Live on Musical.ly requires the Live.ly app and it is a live video stream of what your camera sees.
