After launching a tab for finding videos on its social media platform last year, Facebook is now unveiling a dedicated new platform for video discovery called Facebook 'Watch.' Watch will be available across mobile, laptop, desktop and TV apps, making it possible for Facebook uers to tunr into both live and recorded episodes with ease.

Watch offers personalized discovery tools that offer suggestions based on one's interests or activity from friends. Users will also be able to browse by categories like 'Most Talked About' and 'What's Making People Laugh,' based on users who have used the "Haha" reaction in response to a video. To help users stay on top of their favorite shows, Watch boasts a feature called Watchlist, which keeps tabs on the latest episodes.

With Facebook Watch, users will be able to tune into Nas Daily, broadcasted baseball games and even kid-friendly shows like Kitchen Little.
