Wednesday 20 June 2018 | 09:39 CET | News
Facebook has announced a range of new features for its Watch video platform aimed at making the hub more interactive and opening it up to content creators and publishers. In a statement, the company said Facebook Watch will expand beyond original content and programming to include videos from Pages. "In our testing, we've found that people enjoy discovering and watching a combination of shows and videos in Watch – and for creators this means their videos may be eligible to show up in Watch to be discovered by a broader audience," said the company.
