Just in case you couldn't get enough of Facebook's video content on your phone or PC, the company is now making a bid for your attention on your Xbox as well. The company's Facebook Video app is now available for Xbox One, serving up a constant feed of videos your friends are sharing as well as Facebook's own original video content.
Setting the app up is pretty simple: once you've downloaded and opened it, Facebook Video asks you to open the Facebook app on your phone and give it permission to sign into your account via an in-app notification. Once you're signed in, you'll default to a feed of videos that your friends have liked or recommended. You can also quickly select from live streams, suggested videos, your own videos, and Facebook's own original shows on the left navigation bar. And for gamers, there's a dedicated section to catch videos and live streams for games that you follow.
Xbox One is the latest platform to catch Facebook's attention since the company first started rolling out its dedicated video app for Samsung TVs, Apple TV, and other platforms in 2017. The move comes as the company is turning its attention toward competing with YouTube and Twitch for eyeballs in the online video space.
If you're curious, you can pick up Facebook Video from the Microsoft Store on Xbox One now.
