Facebook Launches Live Video Streaming Feature for iPhone Users in the US

Four months earlier, Facebook introduced live video streaming for celebrities and other high-profile users and now the test drive is expanding further to the regular users.

Initially, Facebook’s Live Video feature is now available for testing by “a small percentage” of U.S. iPhone users, as per official statement from the company.

The feature is going to be rolled out to everyone inside its flagship app and from now onward  the specifically targeted Facebook users will be able to use a redesigned status menu to select “live video.”


Facebook has big plans to roll this feature out for all the users. As on earlier entrants Meerkat and Periscope, Facebook’s streams display the number of live viewers, the names of friends who are watching, and real-time comments as they’re written. Unlike the live-streaming pioneers, Facebook’s videos are saved to your timeline and stay there unless you choose to delete them.
