We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. Facebook is serious about video and is really doing its best to show it to users. So much so, that video features on desktop and mobile are being tested and launched in quick succession. The latest addition to these, a dedicated video feed to help users discover video through their friends on the platform.
Up until now, Facebook was the place where you’d “stumble across” videos rather than find what you were looking form. To change this, the company is testing a new dedicated video feed where user can find videos their friends have shared, videos from Pages they like, trending videos, or videos they have saved. It also provides a history of videos that you have watched.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
Facebook is testing the new video feed on some users, who will see a Videos button instead of the Messenger button on iOS. If you are lucky enough to have the feature enabled on your iOS app, you can look through different video channels by swiping vertically, and discover the videos they contain by swiping horizontally. Check out this video from TechCrunch.
