Facebook went through various changes over the years, and with the exploding popularity of short-format videos, Meta has decided to implement some changes.

The company has released a new video player, so without further ado, let’s see what’s new.

Facebook’s video player just got a lot better

According to a recent blog post from Meta, Facebook will now show videos, Reels, and Live content in a full screen by default.

The new player will also have improved recommendations for all videos allowing you to find the right content for you.

All videos will play automatically in portrait mode, but you’ll have the option to quickly switch to landscape view.

There will also be a slider that allows you to easily navigate to the desired part of the video.

The ability to skip forward or backward 10 seconds is also there, and to use it, you just need to tap the video first.

This is a great change, and it’s currently rolling out to mobile users in the US and Canada, but we should see it available worldwide in the future.

Speaking of videos, LinkedIn is testing a video feed feature, and YouTube just got a pesky Get started pop-up.
