Stream Facebook videos on TV from smartphone now
New York, Oct 18 (IANS) Facebook has allowed users to watch news feed videos on their televisions with a new feature that lets them stream video clips.
Users with iOS devices can stream their videos via Apple TV, AirPlay devices, Google Chromecast and Google Cast devices, Tech Crunch reported on Tuesday.
The move can help Facebook generate more video ad revenue.
To use the new feature, find a video on your phone or desktop, tap the TV button in the top right and then select the device you want to stream through.
“You can keep scrolling through the feed and using Facebook while the video continues to stream,” the report added.
The feature is currently available on iOS and will come to Android devices soon.
YouTube and Twitter-owned Periscope already allow users to stream their videos onto televisions.
