Social media platforms are becoming an integral part of your life. Apps like Facebook and Twitter are available for smart TVs and streaming devices as well. Among all the social media platforms, Facebook is the most used platform. The reason behind this success is that Facebook has different types of apps like standard Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Facebook Lite, Facebook Watch, and more. In Vizio Smart TV, only the Facebook Watch app is available.
We all know that Vizio has two types of smart TVs: VIA Smart TV and Vizio SmartCast TVs. In the Vizio SmartCast TV models, the Facebook Watch app comes as a pre-installed app. In the other Vizio smart TV models, you can screen mirror the app from your smartphone.
What is Facebook Watch?
Facebook Watch is a video-on-demand service app owned by Facebook. In Facebook Watch, you can get to watch all the videos and clips that are trending on Facebook. Facebook Watch is available for all the countries where Facebook is available. But for Vizio Smart TVs, it is available only in the USA and Canada. In the app, you will get Facebook Originals video content like Red Table Talk, Returning the Favor, and more.
