Android users rejoice! Facebook Live Video comes to Android.

If you’re an Android user and live in the US, you now have the ability to broadcast live video directly from Facebook.

To get started, all you have to do is update your status as you normally would. For example, clicking on the “What’s on your mind?” field at the top of your News Feed, followed by the Live Video icon. From here, type in a status about your video and you’re live!

Once you’re up and running, you can respond to real-time comments and see how many people are watching your stream. When the broadcast is over the video is archived on your Timeline, where you have the choice of keeping or  deleting it.

That’s it!
