Facebook launches new way of watching videos for users

NEW DELHI: Facebook has commenced testing an easier way to watch videos on Facebook.

When the user sees a video in News Feed, it comes to life and starts playing. Videos will play silently, but users can tap to play with sound in full screen. The viewers may also scroll past if they do not want to watch it. 

Users will see this on mobile in the coming weeks.

At present, videos start playing from individuals (personal Facebook accounts or verified Pages), and pages of musicians and bands. But videos only play with sound after one clicks on them.

At first, this feature will be limited to videos posted by individuals, musicians, and bands and Facebook is doing this to make sure it creates the best possible experience. Later, it will continue to explore how to bring this to marketers.
