  • Facebook Launches 'Video' App for Fourth-Generation Apple TV

After announcing its plans for the app earlier this month, Facebook this evening officially released its video-centric app on the fourth-gen Apple TV.

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. Facebook's VP of Partnerships Dan Rose had earlier announced that the Facebook app on your TV screen might go live. The app allows users to watch videos from friends, liked pages, top live videos and more.

The impact on you at home: Facebook envisioned its video app as a leanback experience that lets you watch an endless stream of videos from news channels, Fail Army, and home videos by your friends.

Good news if you have an Apple TV and an active Facebook account. Facebook is trying to change that however with the Facebook Video app since Facebook wants to become the leader in online videos. So you can head over there to install it on your Apple TV.

Each row displays tiles that represent separate videos, and when you stop on a particular tile it will auto-play with sound. It will also include video recommendations based on your interests and your viewing history. There is also a possibility of live sports streaming, just like Twitter had with some Thursday Night NFL games past year.

While you're watching something in full screen, swipe up and you can see related videos. Now, we get to see the final product as the company has released the software to the Apple TV after first releasing it to Samsung Smart TVs.
