New Facebook Apple TV App Now Available

Getting even smarter The new Facebook video app for television is now officially available on Samsung's smart TVs

A little more than two weeks after Facebook first revealed plans to launch a dedicated video app for TV screens, the company has finally started rolling it out, kicking off this week with Samsung TVs and Apple TV.

Meanwhile, live streams have a different setup from pre-recorded content.

That said, in the case of Samsung, you can normally use your phone's keypad to enter information and control things through the Samsung Smart View app - that doesn't appear to be an option with the Facebook video app. Similar to other TV apps, you can log in from your mobile device.

The Facebook Video app for tvOs is now available to download from the tvOS App Store for free.

Videos are split into six channels: Shared by Friends, Following, Recommended for You, Top Live Videos, Saved Videos and Recently Watched.

Each row displays tiles that represent separate videos, and when you stop on a particular tile it will auto-play with sound. If you like a video, you can tap on the remote to bring it up to full screen. You may now select the category you like and scroll through the videos found in that category. For example, if you've followed the infamous page Relationship Rules, you'll see content shared by the page.

This app is exclusively focused on providing relatable video content from your News Feed - those shared by your friends or Pages you're following on the platform. The Settings tab is where you can enable captions, comments, and reactions-all of which are turned off by default. From here you can go from the Home tab to the Profile tab.

Then Facebook flexes its algorithmic muscles with videos it thinks you'll like based on your various activities across the Facebook-connected ecosystem. You will also be able to see recommended videos for you to watch on the Facebook Video app for Apple TV. For that reason it lacks a search function, which isn't terribly surprising since Facebook has always been bad at search.
