Video consumption is growing among users of technology in2016, and Facebook is poised to take advantage of that growth.

After introducing live video earlier this year, the firm is now making it easier for users to watch Facebook video on their TV’s either  via way of Google Cast, or Apple’s Airplay.

The feature is available on the Google Chrome browser or the Facebook Mobile apps for iOS and Android.

To use this feature from Chrome on your Windows 10 PC, Facebook has a handy guide up on their website:

  • Find a video you want to watch on your phone or desktop and press the TV symbol in the top right corner.
  • Select the device you want the video to stream to.
  • Enjoy the video right from your TV.

Streaming a video via Facebook casts through the native Chromecast and/or Airplay features built into mobile devices and (some) browsers today, so you can continue scrolling on your phone, tablet or PC while you’re watching the video on the TV.

There’s no word on Xbox support unfortunately for users who’d like to stream to their Xbox’s via Windows 10’s native . There’s also no hint of support for Windows 10’s Facebook apps, but we expect the firm would be adding it in as soon as it can just as it did the live video feature.
