Ustream is a service that lets anyone broadcast video to a live audience — or tune into live broadcasts from other users. You can use the service from a desktop web browser or a mobile app — and now Ustream has launched a new Android app that’s optimized for tablets running Android 3.x Honeycomb.

The Ustream Android app has been overhauled to take advantage of the extra screen real estate on Android tablets. The home screen showcases featured content in a carousel-style window, with current, upcoming, and recent broadcasts on the right. A list of recommended users populates the bottom of the window.

Individual video pages feature a large video window as well as information about the channel and additional content from that user. You can also zoom in for a full-screen view.

You don’t need a Ustream account to watch videos, but if you want to broadcast live video from your tablet or chat with other users, you’ll need to login.

Ustream is available as a free download from the Android Market.
