When Facebook initially launched Live, the company introduced the service on mobile devices. The company later brought it to the desktop on the Facebook app for Windows 10. Today, it’s bringing Facebook Live to all PCs. The company today announced that Facebook Live is now available from the web app for Facebook, which means you can now start streaming from any Windows PC, or even a Mac.
Starting a live stream on Facebook is very easy — you just need to open up the new status box and from there you will see a Live Video option. Once you allow Facebook to use your microphone and webcam, Live Video will let you choose a title for the stream as well as the privacy options. Once that’s configured, you will be able to start streaming via your webcam and finish whenever you like.
Facebook is also taking on Twitch and Microsoft’s Beam game streaming platforms with Live video. The company now allows anyone to stream via streaming software — which means you can now stream your gameplays and more via Facebook right from the desktop which is really neat. To use this feature, all you have to do is follow the instructions here.
Live streaming on Facebook.com is now available to some users right now, and it will be rolling out to more users in the coming days.
