Facebook is continuing to take its live video service very seriously, prominently placing live video on mobile and rolling out some new features for users today.
The company will now show a dedicated tab on the mobile app where people can see live video. The company last year tested a tab, but in its statement on the updates it billed it as a dedicated part of the app where “you can discover live video that the world is talking about, live video from the friends and creators that matter most to you, and live video on topics you’re interested in. From that place, you can also search live and non-live videos, and choose to go live yourself. Simply tap on the new video icon in the app to navigate to this new space.”
