The rumors circulating at the beginning of the week turned out to be true: Facebook Live is indeed being rolled out to Windows 10 users. The app currently shows up for some users, while other still don’t have it. If you find yourself in the second category, just have a little patience.

Facebook Live allows you to broadcast live video straight from your Windows 10 desktop app. This feature has been available for a long time for phone and tablet users and is part of Microsoft’s commitment to UWP app development.

Facebook Live is probably still in its beta version, which could explain why Facebook has not rolled it out to all users at the same time. The company probably wants to test this version on as many computers as possible in order to detect possible issues and fix them before rolling out the app to all users.

To start live streaming using Facebook Live on your Windows 10 device, you need a Windows 10 Facebook app version that supports this feature. Launch the app and click on the “Go Live” button, under your status box. Facebook will first show you a preview of your webcam. If you are satisfied with the image quality and you can then update your status, and click on “Go Live”.

All your Facebook friends will be notified about your live stream and you can also observe comments on your stream while still streaming live. Click on “Finish” to end the live streaming session.

Speaking of Facebook, the app received important updates on Windows 10 and loads faster now. Facebook Messenger is another great app that is now compatible with Windows 10.

Another well-known app that allows you to stream live is Skype. The app recently became a UWP app and now supports dark mode and multiple accounts.

Have you already tested out Facebook Live? How was your experience?
