Facebook Live Chat, Joint Video Streams Introduced

Now, users will have the ability to chat privately during a live video broadcast, instead of just seeing public comments, making the experience more social. Right now, Facebook is testing this feature but it will become available to all users.

The other new feature added to Facebook Live brings joint live streams to users, so they can share their screens with others in different locations. Previously, this feature was only available to public figures.

Facebook is currently testing a cross-app notifications feature, which brings together Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram notifications.
