In a bid to give users more options as to how and where they can watch videos, social media giant Facebook on Thursday announced a new app for TV.
With the app, you can watch videos shared by friends or Pages you follow, top live videos from around the world, and recommended videos based on your interests.
The company also announced new updates wherein sound fades in and out as you scroll through videos in News Feed, bringing those videos to life.
It's now possible to minimise the running video to a picture-in-picture view that keeps playing in the corner of your screen while you browse other stories in News Feed.
Users can drag the video to any corner of the screen, and if using an Android device, video can keep playing even when you exit the Facebook app to do something else on your phone, the company said.
