Live Chat With Friends lets you invite friends to a private chat about a public live broadcast. You can invite friends who are already watching or other friends who you think may want to tune in.
With Live Chat With Friends, you can be part of big moments with the wider community but also have the option to participate in personal conversations with the people closest to you, directly within the Live experience.
Now available for all profiles and Pages on iOS, Live With Friends lets you invite a friend into your live video so you can hang out together, even if you’re not in the same place.
Today’s update also comes with the ability for live streaming users to start a direct message with one of their viewers so they can have a private chat during the broadcast.
Sharing the screen with a friend can make going live more fun and interactive for both you and your viewers.
To invite a friend to join you in your live video, simply select a guest from the Live Viewers section, or tap a comment from the viewer you want to invite. Your viewer can then choose whether or not to join your broadcast. You can go live with a guest in both portrait mode for a picture-in-picture experience and landscape mode for a side-by-side experience.
