Facebook has finally confirmed that it is rolling out dedicated Facebook video apps for Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Samsung smart TVs. The move follows Facebook’s ability to cast videos to larger TV screens via connected streaming boxes in the last year. The function is native to the streaming devices and Facebook is bringing similar approach for the TVs.
Users will be able to watch videos shared by friends or Pages they follow, watch top live videos from around the world and recommended videos based on their interests. Users will also be able to catch up on videos earlier saved to watch later, as well as revisit videos they’ve watched, shared or uploaded.
