After a live broadcast has ended, Periscope will now generate a Highlight. It's basically a short trailer people can watch before committing to the full video. This will be live on Android and iOS in a few days. In the Android app, live broadcasts will now autoplay in the Watch Tab and Global Feed. Sound will be disabled by default, but you can open the video to play it normally.
