The live video streaming app Meerkat is now available for download. The app was previously available as a closed beta, requiring invitations to unlock access.

So what's Meerkat all about? It's an app that enables you to broadcast live video to everyone on the Internet by linking your Twitter account. The stream ends once the broadcast has been killed. The company behind Meerkat has been accepting beta testers in a closed program, but now anyone can download the app from Google Play.

Linking through your Twitter account will see the app publish a tweet from your profile to alert followers that you're broadcasting. As well as broadcasting to the world, Meerkat also lets you view other streams, but unfortunately there are no features to allow you to save a particular stream. While the app is available for download, do note that the listing still carries the beta tag.
