Ustream has launched its Viewer App on the Android market, enabling users to watch streams of live events for free while interacting with other users on their mobile devices. The release comes as Ustream ramps up its coverage of live events, including live streaming from the red carpet premieres of hit movies The Twilight Saga: New Moon and Michael Jackson’s This Is It. The launch of the new Android app is set to coincide with a KISS concert in Los Angeles that the company is live streaming, beginning at 7:30 p.m. PST tonight.

And it marks the second app that Ustream has launched on Google’s Android mobile platform, after its Broadcaster App. With the launch, its users can now record and stream videos from mobile devices on both Apple iPhone and Android platforms.

But there are some key differences, as both Android applications provide functionality that the iPhone apps don’t. For instance, the Android Broadcaster app enables users to live stream from their mobile device, which is not supported by the iPhone. Also, The Android viewer app works on 3G and Wi-Fi networks, as does the most recent version of the iPhone app unlike the iPhone viewer app, which only streams over Wi-Fi networks. Both mobile platforms support chat during live streams, with chat available on Android 1.5, 1.6 and 2.0 devices.
