Facebook live streaming on TVs
August 10, 2016
Having introduced live broadcasting to its service, Facebook is now testing a feature on both its Android and iOS apps that would allow users to stream Facebook videos on their TVs.
The social media giant is planning to have the feature work with TVs that are connected to Apple TV or Google Chromecast, apart from AirPlay-connected televisions.
“We’re currently testing updates to the Facebook app that provide better support for streaming videos from the app to your TV via AirPlay and Chromecast,” a Facebook spokesperson confirmed.
The streaming feature will reportedly allow Facebook users to cast the videos on the second screen and also let them minimise the video and carry on with other phone activities.
