Facebook is testing a new way for users to discover more videos from their friends.

According to TechCrunch and sister site AllFacebook, Facebook for iOS users are seeing a prompt to watch more videos when the click on a friend’s movie. Facebook confirmed to TechCrunch that it’s something the site is testing:

This is a new feature we are testing on mobile to help people find more videos they might be interested in.

This does not appear on ads, only on videos that users have uploaded directly to Facebook, and not other sites such as YouTube.

The related videos show up as a carousel at the bottom of the screen. The carousel is darkened when a user taps a video to watch it.
