Facebook Gets Support for AirPlay and Chromecast

Facebook has announced that its app and website now support AirPlay and Chromecast, letting users easily watch videos on their television.

To give you even more ways to watch, we’re excited to roll out the ability to stream videos from Facebook to your TV — through devices like Apple TV or Google Chromecast — so you have the option to enjoy your favorite videos on a bigger screen. You can already stream Facebook videos to Apple TV (and other AirPlay-enabled devices) or Chromecast (and other Google Cast–enabled devices) from an iOS device or your web browser, and soon you’ll be able to cast from Android devices to Chromecast as well.

Facebook Gets Support for AirPlay and Chromecast

To watch a video from Facebook on your TV:
● Find a video you want to watch on your phone or desktop and press the TV symbol in the top right corner.
● Select the device you want the video to stream to.
● Enjoy the video right from your TV.

While you’re watching a Facebook video on your TV, you can go back and scroll through News Feed on the device you’re streaming from, so you can catch up on other stories while your video keeps playing on the TV. Or you can find more videos to watch by choosing a new one from places like News Feed or your Saved tab. If you’re streaming a Facebook Live video to your TV, you can see real-time reactions and comments on the screen, and you can join in the conversation yourself by reacting or commenting.

I have been able to do this on my TV for a couple of months through airplay and chromecast. Maybe I was on a public beta?

Wasn't that possible anyway already?
