People tend to watch a lot of videos on Facebook. Those that do are probably annoyed that it has not been possible to scroll through the News Feed and watch the video at the same time. That’s just the way it is. You either have to watch the entire video or leave it to continue scrolling through the posts, updates and photos. Well, the good news is that Facebook is finally making this right by testing floating videos in the News Feed.
Users will be able to pop-out videos from the News Feed which will then float alongside the content so that users can continue scrolling and watching for as long as they like. That should solve this problem once and for all.
Some Facebook users are seeing a new button on videos which then pops it out and floats it on the lower left of the screen. The floating video can be dragged across the entire page or even shared any time you like.
The floating video will disappear if you head to another page so just be aware. This solution gives users the best of both worlds. It’s a test right now, so it may take some time before Facebook decides to make this feature available to everyone. Hopefully we can all use it soon.
