Let me start straight with a Fun fact, Facebook's rival YouTube has used the 4K Videos technology since 2010. And now, we are living in 2017 and still we do not have 4K quality of Videos on facebook. Facebook supports over 2160p quality of videos. So, thus facebook is testing its 4K videos so that it could present it in front of all users. Let's learn more from this report:
Facebook testing 4K Quality of Videos:
After launching a host of video-centric features over the last year, Facebook is now finally testing 4K quality of videos that can be played on the platform.
Facebook is testing Ultra-High-Resolution video uploads that use the 2160p UHD-1 standard for both uploaders and watchers. The social network confirmed testing of 4K video with the publication.
Some Facebook pages and profiles can post and watch 4K videos.
How to check the highest available resolution of a video?
To check if you're watching the highest available resolution, click on the gear icon on the video, and switch to 2160p (4K) if available. Video hosting platform YouTube has been working with 4K video since 2010 with 4K live streaming rolling out last year.
Instagram's update of Live Streaming with a Friend:
Facebook-owned photo sharing service Instagram announced users could now live stream with a friend. Called 'going live with a friend', the new feature can be found in version 20 of the Instagram app for Android and iOS, already live on the respective app stores. The feature will be rolling out globally in the coming weeks, Instagram said.
