Facebook’s Watch Option Now Has New Features

The users will find ‘What's Happening' and ‘Featured' sections in Watch

Facebook has introduced some exciting features in its video-on-demand platform Watch that is being visited by over 1.25 billion people every month.

Facebook Watch is the go-to place to discover videos across the platform from live events, to TV shows, sports, news, or music videos.

“In addition to following your favorite Pages and Profiles, you can now also follow topics. Topics let you personalize the videos that show up in your feed so it’s tailored to what you care about,” Facebook said in a statement on Monday.

Follow NewsGram on LinkedIn to know what’s happening around the world.

Available in the US to begin with, Topics can also help users find new Pages to follow.

In the US and select markets, the users will also find ‘What’s Happening’ and ‘Featured’ sections in Watch.

“Videos in these sections are chosen by Facebook so you can catch up on timely and relevant moments, like the Television Academy’s annual Emmy Awards or MLB World Series highlights,” the company added.

In addition, you’ll see videos in your Watch feed based on what your friends are reacting to and what’s popular in your Groups.
