People are watching and sharing more video on Facebook than ever and keeping in view the changing habits Facebook is soon rolling out an update to all its users. With this update, sound fades in and out as you scroll through videos in News Feed, bringing those videos to life.
But between now and the end of the year Facebook's News Feed will be enabling sound on your News Feed by default, a move the company has been testing out on a limited number of users for a short while.
"I've said before that I see video as a mega-trend on the same order as mobile", Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg told investors and analysts during the firm's earnings conference call on February 1. Can be disabled Although Facebook is keen to tout the benefits, auto-playing video remains a controversial social media feature. If you really like using Facebook's mobile app, however, you can disable the audio-on default in its settings.
Users will be able to view top live videos from around the world and clips shared by friends or Pages they follow
The company said on Tuesday it has built a connected video app for TVs, promising that the new app will roll out in a few weeks for a slew of devices, including the Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Smart TVs, and to different set-top boxes in the future.
This also poses the possibility of Facebook's app being more involved in music streaming, however that still remains unclear. The service, too, could potentially feature longer, more compelling programming, the licensing for which is already being considered by Facebook as it approaches media companies. Facebook has taken that demand and made the format a rising priority for the company, which will be integrated for consumer features and advertisements. However, Facebook is also making the assumption that people want to view its videos on larger screens, whereas trends in digital viewing suggest a preference to view on hand-held devices.
The app offers a new way to watch videos on a bigger screen without having to go to the website. Those who have filmed videos in portrait mode and uploaded them to Facebook in the past should find this change handy. At least now you don't have to deal with it if you don't want to. On Android devices, you can even continue playing the clip if you leave the Facebook app.
