Facebook is making some changes to video playback in the mobile app that include the ability to watch FB video on your smart TV.  Let’s check out the changes.

Users will now be able to expand vertical videos to a full-screen size.

They’ll also be able to see a frame by frame preview of where they are in the video when they navigate.

In the past, if you scrolled past a video, it stopped playing. Now you can keep scrolling and let the video play.

You can even watch that video outside of the Facebook app.

There’s also a brand-new Facebook Video app for smart TVs that will be available for Samsung Smart TV as well Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV. Other platforms are expected to add the app soon.
