New Test Rollout In India – Fb
In markets like India, mobile data and connectivity are limited, which can leave people with poor video experiences or no streaming ability at all. We want to make the video experience on Facebook great for people in all parts of the world.
Starting July 11, 2016, we’ll be rolling out the option for a small group of people to download videos to their Facebook app while they’re online with good internet connections, so they can then watch the video at any time, offline or online. This will ensure a great user experience and allow your video content to reach new audiences.
We take content security very seriously, so downloaded content will be stored in the Facebook application alone and will not be available to share or view in other applications.
Videos from all Pages and profiles will be available to download, unless the page or profile opts out.
