There’s a chance that Facebook’s new live streaming service, Facebook Live, might be headed to its Windows 10 Universal app due to a few screenshots showing how Facebook Live function appearing online.

The screenshots were originally posted by Techtudo’s Elson de Souza, who claims that Windows 10 users of the Facebook app are now able to host live streams right from the app. However, we weren’t able to access the feature yet, but assume this feature will be available to the general public very soon.

We still don’t know how Elson managed to get this feature before others. Maybe it is some kind of beta testing but more likely Facebook is rolling out the feature gradually. If you somehow managed to get this feature on your Windows 10 device, we’re going to show you how to use it (also courtesy of Elson de Souza).
