Facebook is making its Live Video functionality, which started testing in December 2015, available to everyone in the US via iPhone, with plans to start rolling this out to the rest of the world over the coming weeks.

“You can discover live videos from your friends and public figures you follow right in News Feed. While watching a live video, you can tap the Subscribe button to get notified the next time the broadcaster goes live,” advised Vadim Lavrusik, Product Manager.

“Live is also available to public figures and verified Pages, and we are working to bring live video to people using Android phones soon,” he revealed.
