A statement sent by the social media giant to Social Times revealed.
Now Go Live on Facebook from Your Desktop
Now Go Live on Facebook from Your Desktop. For the time being this feature is only for businesses and brands with Facebook Pages, not individuals. But eventually this feature will make its way to the public soon. Though some users have already seen it appear but it is not official yet. It will also make Facebook Live much more competitive with YouTube, where daily vloggers usually record from their PCs.
For Now the Feature is only for Businesses and Brands with Facebook Pages
Facebook introduced its latest updates for publishers, pulling the service’s core purposes and addressing some of the challenges publishers face to get their content up and running online.
According to the new update, Facebook Pages can now go live via web browser. All you need is an online connection and a camera to broadcast.
Till now users could only use this feature on smartphones. But now with this update, Pages can just broadcast directly via a laptop or desktop’s webcam.
Other than this update, Pages will now be able to nominate “Live Contributors,” necessarily creating anchor roles for many people within an organisation who need to broadcast live.
Time will reveal how Facebook users will answer to this feature. But one thing is for sure that businesses will find it easier to broadcast their content.
As their is tough competition between Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and many more, every platform tries its level best to introduce new features. So lets keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.
