Facebook Video Comes to the Nvidia Shield & Android TV


Facebook has slowly been rolling out its new video app to new devices. Back in March Facebook rolled out their app to Samsung devices, Amazon Video, and more.

Now it is the Nvidia Shield & Android TV turn to get the new Facebook Video app. With this new app you can log in to your Facebook account and watch videos from your friends. You can access top videos and recommended videos on a wide range of topics too.

You will also get access to Facebook Live Videos not only from your friends but also find the most popular Facebook Live videos at that moment. This could be a great resource for breaking news because more and more TV channels started offering live coverage of breaking news streamed on their Facebook pages.

This seems to be the early steps into a video service to take on Twitter and its new video streaming efforts. Recently Facebook and Major League Baseball (MLB) Started streaming a MLB game every Friday.

Hopefully Facebook will continue to offer more events streamed for free on Facebook and a growing list of supported media players.

You can add the Facebook app to your Android TV device by going to the Facebook Google Play listing. If you select a Android TV device it will download the special Facebook Video app to that device.

      Just wait till they connect everyone to the machine with FB in the brain. You think it’s bad now? The 666 Singularity is just around the bend! 20-25 years tops! (Lord Jesus come quickly!)

    I don’t get the obsession with facebook. To me it’s a waste of time and technology.

    I’m happy for the folks that are that FB obsessed. I use to enjoy FB but, it’s changed so much in the last 4 years that I hate it. In fact, I’ve actually been slowly moving away from FB for over a year now, to the point that I really don’t ever go the FB site anymore. As far as using any video device for FB, I have no interest in looking at cat, baby, or political videos on FB, and I can see any important family videos when my family show up or text them to me.
