In addition, the feature will continue to roll out to Facebook Pages as well in the coming weeks. The company in the blog post stated that, "more than 50 percent of people watching live videos are using Android devices."

Users can check if they have the live streaming tool by tapping on the Update Status bar at the top of the News Feed and looking for the Live Video icon. Facebook Live Videos work in a similar fashion as Twitter's Periscope. Users can start streaming a live video and the viewers can comment and like the stream. Facebook will also show the number of views on the live streaming video.

Last week, Facebook rolled out its Reactions emojis worldwide.
