TechCrunch reports that Facebook is adding a live streaming button to the middle of its iOS and Android apps leading to a dedicated page and a map of live streams. You can choose to stream to groups or events now and viewers can use all Facebook reactions. Comments and reactions will replay when viewed later. Facebook is paying some publishers to stream on the platform. The new button and features should roll out to users over the next few weeks.
