Facebook is Testing a Watch Later Button For Video Viewing
by | Jul 17, 2015 | Video Industry News | No Comments

Facebook is testing a new “Watch Later” button, a little tab that allows users to point out a video they want to watch at a later time. The Watch Later tab will be suitable for desktop viewers as an overlay positioned in the upper right corner. This feature may benefit Facebook in the “struggle” against YouTube, as this new playing option can make users stay longer on site and it can provide the possibility to come back later to watch the flagged video when they want to. The new improvement will give advertisers one more reason to keep Facebook video in the top of their mind. One thing’s for sure, this new option will definitely provide Facebook users a chance to engage with more of the video content posted by their friends and others they follow on this social network.
