Facebook has announced that its app and website now support AirPlay and Chromecast, letting users easily watch videos on their television.
To give you even more ways to watch, we’re excited to roll out the ability to stream videos from Facebook to your TV — through devices like Apple TV or Google Chromecast — so you have the option to enjoy your favorite videos on a bigger screen. You can already stream Facebook videos to Apple TV (and other AirPlay-enabled devices) or Chromecast (and other Google Cast–enabled devices) from an iOS device or your web browser, and soon you’ll be able to cast from Android devices to Chromecast as well.
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.
