Facebook is one of the best social media platforms that have evolved over the time. More and more people join Facebook in order to keep in touch with friends and family and to watch interesting things online.
Just like YouTube, Facebook is going to have a new feature: Videos on TV. This new feature lets you watch videos while you are scrolling on your phone and desktop. The videos are going to be streamed on your TV with the help of Google Chromecast or Apple TV. This feature is available only if you have a smart TV and the Facebook app.
A survey showed that more than 100 million hours of videos are watched every day by Facebook users. People are used to seeing the videos on their laptop, computer or smartphone. In order to make users lives easier Facebook decided to integrate this feature and now people are going to be able to watch their videos on TV and scroll on their phone at the same time. Another interesting thing about this is that people can also see the comments on the video and the reactions, including their own reaction.
It is very easy to use. First of you have to select a video, go and select the TV icon that is located in the right corner and then you have to select which device you’d like the video to be displayed on. After that, you can just relax, watch the video and see the other posts on your laptop or phone.
This is not a big surprise for anybody because it seemed like the next step for this app to integrate this feature. Facebook videos have become very popular in the last few months because of the live sessions that everybody does now. All the users on Facebook started to film themselves while they do different stuff and they go live so people could watch them as they are doing it. This also means that you can comment and tell the person what to do next. This is why the social media platform decided to make this step.
This is going to make a lot of people happy because they have the opportunity to see two things at the same time and with a better resolution.
Will you use this new feature?
