Facebook Live Can Now Stream Continuously For 24 Hours

Facebook has been working on Live video feeds for a small while now. Over the past couple of months, Facebook has launched the Facebook Live feature which notifies you when anyone on your friends list starts a live video feed.

Up until recently, the maximum amount of time you were allowed to stream live video was just 90 minutes. Today, Facebook has changed these rules and will now allow continuous video streams that well surpass the original 90 minute time limit. The initial downside of having the ability to host longer Live streams is that viewers won’t be able to advance or rewind the live stream during broadcast.

Facebook’s Live hopes to trump YouTube’s Live stream and Twitter-owned Periscope by incorporating different elements than those offered by these live streaming services. One advantage of which is Facebook already hosts the majority of people you know that can easily access your Live Stream. Otherwise, YouTube users would need to share a link with their Facebook friends in order for them to be seen.

New features to the Facebook Live API include on-classy screen graphics and multi-camera broadcasts. Disney, The Bleacher Report, and CSPAN have already taken advantage of these API features. Facebook hopes to have a highly robust live-streaming platform for companies and users alike to hold advantage of. Who knows, with these recent features, a 24 hour live news station could potentially come to a platform like Facebook.
