Facebook Is Testing a New Video Tab in Its Apps’ Navigation Bars

The 'play button' icon brings up 'an endless stream' of Facebook videos

Facebook confirmed that it is running a “small test,” in India, of a video tab in the navigation bar of its flagship mobile applications.

Abhimanyu Ghoshal of The Next Web spotted the feature in his Android app and shared the screenshot above.

According to Ghoshal, pressing the icon, which resembles a play button, brings up “an endless stream” of Facebook videos, from pages users follow and videos liked or shared by friends.

Users can also search for more video content via categories including entertainment, comedy, lifestyle, animals, sports and news, Ghoshal reported.
