As video ads focus has increased, Facebook comes out with a new “watch later” option on videos uploaded directly to the site. The “watch later” option is only available for desktops and it appears as a little tab on the right-hand corner of every video uploaded on Facebook. If a user clicks on the “watch later” option and he/she needs the video later, the video can be found under the “saved” tab on the left-hand side of the News Feed.
The new feature was added to the site just to attract more users to its video content as well as increase its competition with YouTube which also have same feature.
The “Watch Later” option was announced by Facebook earlier last month that it is testing out a new ad-supported video feature, called Suggested Videos, which shares revenue with content creators.
