San Francisco based social media firm, Facebook Inc. has confirmed it is rolling out its Live feature to desktop versions. The feature is still presently available for Android and iOS devices only.
“We’re starting to roll out the ability for people to broadcast live on Facebook from their desktop or laptop,” a Facebook representative confirmed.
The feature is currently not available to everyone, but to a very small proportion of users. However, it’s expected to roll out to the general public in the near future.
A user named Delilah Taylor was able to use the feature on her laptop, as pointed out by SocialTimes, and posted the video on Facebook. She explained the process to begin a Facebook Live via desktop in a chunk of her video, NDTV news reports.
The Facebook Live feature will use your laptop’s camera or desktop PC’s peripheral camera device to allow user to go live on the social media platform.
