How to watch Facebook videos on TV

Facebook now allows you stream videos from your mobile devices or PC to  your TV through Apple TV from an iOS devise and Google Chromecast  through a web browser. The social media giant is also working to enable  people cast from their Android devices to Chromecast soon.

Facebook is focused on creating video experiences that people want, and  have also heard that people want different options for how and where  they watch videos that they discover on the platform.

To watch a video from Facebook on your TV:

•    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.

While you’re watching a Facebook video on your TV, you can go back and  scroll through News Feed on the device you’re streaming from, so you can  catch up on other stories while your video keeps playing on the TV; or  you can find more videos to watch by choosing a new one from places like
News Feed or your Saved tab. And if you’re streaming a Facebook Live  video to your TV, you can see real-time reactions and comments on the  screen, and you can join in the conversation yourself by reacting or commenting.

Chromecast is a digital media player developed by Google. The device is  a 2.83-inch (72 mm) HDMI wireless adapter that plays audio/video content  on a high-definition television or display by directly streaming it via  Wi-Fi from the Internet or a local network. The Google Chromecast HDMI
streaming media player displays content from phones, tablets, or laptops  on your TV screen.

Chromecast works with a number of apps including Netflix and YouTube.

Apple TV is a digital media player and a micro-console developed and sold  by Apple Inc. It is a small network appliance and entertainment device  that can receive digital data from a number of sources and stream it to a capable television.

Whether you’re hanging out with friends or just relaxing on the couch by  yourself, Facebook hopes you enjoy this new way to watch videos.
