Facebook to introduce live video sharing on Android


In a post via Facebook newsroom, Vadim LavrusikFacebook’s product manager announced that sharing  live video o Facebook will soon be available to all Facebook users in the coming weeks. However, the feature has been made available to iPhone users in the US.

In his statement;

To share live video, tap on Update Status and then select the Live Video icon. You can write a quick description and choose the audience that you want to share with before going live. During your broadcast, you’ll see the number of live viewers, the names of friends who are tuning in and a real-time stream of comments. When you end your broadcast, it will be saved on your Timeline like any other video, which you can then delete or keep for your friends to watch later.

You can discover live videos from your friends and public figures you follow right in News Feed. While watching a live video, you can tap the Subscribe button to get notified the next time the broadcaster goes live.

Live is also available to public figures and verified Pages, and we are working to bring live video to people using Android phones soon. Learn more about Live in our Help Center.

The live video sharing function was rolled out in December in a testing phase. Now its about to be fully integrated with Facebook’s service. Live video sharing is similar to Twitter’s periscope videos, and is tipped to rival the twitters live video function.
