At the beginning of the year Facebook announced that its users are watching a whopping 100 million hours of video per day. So it’s doesn’t come as a surprise that the social network is trying to make it easier for its users to watch that video, starting with people using their iOS app or accessing Facebook in a web browser.
If you’d rather not be confined to your laptop, iPhone or iPad screen, you can now watch Facebook videos on your TV provided you have either a Chromecast or an Apple TV.
So how does it work? To throw the video to your TV, just open up the video you want to watch and in the top right-hand corner, tap the little TV button. You should see a screen that gives you the option to beam the video to your TV using the Chromecast or Apple TV (Airplay).
