A new button that’s quietly appeared on Facebook for some today allows video to be popped out from the newsfeed so you can keep watching as you scroll.
Once pressed, the video continues playing and floats out of the way on the lower left of the screen. It can be dragged anywhere and directly liked or shared at any point.
Unfortunately the video doesn’t stick around if you head to a different page. The feature pretty useful if you don’t want to just sit watching a longer video or just want to keep aimlessly browsing your feed.
Facebook is pushing harder into YouTube’s territory with its video service, now offering some creators a cut of advertising revenue and pushing even more videos in your Newsfeed.
Thanks for the tip, Adam!
