A new feature is rolling out in Facebook to the iPhone users and it is called as Facebook Live Streaming. You can now stream Live videos in the Facebook’s app for iPhone. The company made the announcement in its official blog post on January 28, 2016.
Facebook started testing the live video feature in December, 2015. The Facebook Live Streaming services were first available to celebrities and a few of carefully chosen users. Since then, the company has received tremendous responses for this feature as it was used to connect with family and friends in a new different way.
However, the feature is not available in all the countries. Live Video is currently available only to the users in the US. However, the company has promised that the feature will be rolled out to the rest of the countries over the coming weeks. The company has not disclosed the details whether when the Live Video feature will be available in Android Smartphones. But the post says, “We are working to bring live video to people using Android phones soon.”
How to live stream in Facebook app for iPhone.
To live stream, tap on “Update Status” and select the new Live Video icon. It allows you to choose you who you want to share the post with and write a small description before you go live. After the broadcast begins, you will be able to see the number of live viewers, the names of friends who are tuning in and a real-time stream of comments.
Once the broadcast is finished, the whole live stream will be saved as a video like any other video on your Timeline. You will also be able to delete the whole video or save it for your friends and family to watch it later.
