The app, which is live now on the Google Play store, lets viewers access live-streamed video that is available on the social network, alongside other Twitter content such as short video clips and ‘top Tweets’.
Twitter, which has made a push into premium video, launched a version of the app for Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Xbox One devices in September.
Last month, Twitter announced that it is shutting its short-form video app Vine, at the same time as it said it would cut 9% of the company’s total staff in a cost-cutting move.
On the video front, Twitter is focusing instead on live streaming and said in its quarterly letter to investors that it has signed more than a dozen live streaming video partnerships since June.
