Did Facebook Just Ban Livestream Shows? No.

Facebook Messenger Watch Together

While the jury is still out on those live-streaming original works, these new regulations will make it practically impossible for bands to share their music videos or videos containing their own music across Facebook and Instagram, unless they've partnered with Facebook in one way or another - which assumably, will only apply to larger record labels and publishers. And many people feared they'd no longer be able to post certain types of content they'd long utilized Facebook for, like a band's latest music video.

'We created Watch Together to make spending quality time with friends and loved ones feel as close to an in-person experience as possible, ' said Facebook product manager Nora Micheva.

When you start a Messenger video call or create a Messenger Room, access the menu by swiping up and select Watch Together from there. With COVID-19 spoiling the fun for all adventure enthusiasts like myself, video calls became the staple mode of communication, and co viewing online videos became the new definition of "hanging out.' With this in mind, Facebook has confirmed that it is launching a new feature called 'Watch Together" for Messenger, which will, like the namesake, allow people to watch stuff together.

Death toll in West Coast wildfires reaches 35, officials anxious about winds
Strong winds have led authorities to issue "red flag" warnings across the American West as dozens of wildfires continue to rage. Millions of dollars are spent on such reduction efforts every year in western states, though many argue more needs to be done.

Facebook recently bolstered its licensed video offerings, which include shows like Community and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, with music video catalogs from top artists like Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Elton John and Nicki Minaj. If you are a chef or a fitness trainer, your audience can now watch your video and interact with you over a Messenger video.

A few months ago, Facebook introduced several new tools to help users stay in touch with family and friends wherever, regardless of where they are in the world. Last week, Verizon Media's Yahoo Sports debuted a watch-party feature in its mobile app, timed for the kickoff of the NFL's 2020 season, to let up to four people livestream pro football for free alongside a Zoom-like video chat.

How do I use Amazon Prime's Watch Party feature? You can then select a video from multiple categories, or search for the specific video you'd like to view. Moreover, Facebook has not enabled the feature for YouTube videos.
