Facebook has mentioned that the social media giant is currently working on a separate app focused on the video content on the Smart TV platform.
This app will run on set-top boxes like the Apple TV, Samsung Smart TV and Amazon Fire TV. This new app will only focus and push out video content to the TV so that you don’t get lost in other media formats like text and photos that are not meant to be consumed on larger screens.
The company detailed that this move is to target all the Smart TV and set-top box users who wanted more selections to consume videos. The new app will roll out soon and is not limited to the platforms mentioned. You can watch all the videos on your Facebook newsfeed which comprise the videos that have been shared by your friends, family or pages that you follow. One of the most important inclusions is the ability to watch the videos that you have ‘saved to watch later’.
