Facebook Live has gone full-screen, in both portrait and landscape on iOS, and just portrait for now on Android.

The social network said in an email to SocialTimes that landscape full-screen broadcasting on Android will launch later this summer, and also detailed two new features: a video-only mode and longer broadcasts.

The video-only mode allows both broadcasters and viewers who want to focus on the videos to temporarily hide Reactions and comments by swiping right. Users can bring back Reactions and comments by swiping left.

Facebook also announced that Facebook Live sessions via both its flagship applications and the Facebook Live API can now run up to four hours.
