Stream live videos on Facebook Messenger


Facebook Messenger today added the ability to stream live video, adding a feature enjoyed by fans of rival applicationSnapchat. Instant Video lets people broadcast real-time video in Messenger text exchanges, according to a Facebook blog post.


“Instant Video is a reflection of the ubiquity of video – we simply expect to have that ability in real-time, all the time,” Facebook said. The feature also matches one offered in rival Snapchat, the vanishing message service that became a hit with teenagers and lets members share pictures and video clips.
