Facebook "Live Videos" feature now available on PC, desktops and laptops

Mark Zuckerberg and his team at Facebook is finally rolling out "Live videos" feature to PC users. Before now, the feature which was only available on mobile platform, will see both desktops and laptops users enjoying the features.

In an announcement made on the official blog, Facebook wrote;
"We're excited to announce that, as of today, people around the world can broadcast live video to Facebook from their desktop or laptop computers. While it's been possible for people to go live to Facebook from mobile devices since last year, desktop or laptop computers provide a stable camera setup that can be beneficial to many types of Facebook Live broadcasts from Q&As to vlogs to tutorials to any broadcast from someone who isn’t on the move.”
Facebook also announced an added feature to the desktop streaming software. According to Facebook;
“Now users can seamlessly share their screens, insert graphics, switch cameras, or use professional equipment in Facebook Live videos. They also have the option to broadcast to Facebook Groups they belong to, Facebook Events they’re part of or Facebook Pages they manage”

To use this feature on PC, simply access your Facebook profile on a computer and click “Live Video” from the top of your News Feed or Timeline. You will then be prompted to share what's on your mind, add a description and choose your audience.
