Can You Get Facebook Watch App on Fire Stick
Facebook Watch is a free application that is announced by the Facebook team that is used to stream Live Videos, Lifestyle, Gaming and other sorts of Videos. This is unlike the official Facebook app as instead of posts you will only see videos from pages that you have liked or based on your search term.
Basically, this first appeared on Facebook Web in the tab section above and then it was announced for mobile devices as well. However, after this feature got used by many individuals throughout the world that’s people were missing it on their TVs as Facebook is not available on this.
This is the reason why they launched a completely new application for Android TVs, Set-top boxes, and Streaming Sticks that is now known as the Facebook Watch. So, the question that many people were looking if they can get the Facebook Watch app on Firestick or not.
The answer is quite simple which is Yes, you can get the Facebook Watch application on Firestick, FireTV Cube etc. Even though downloading this app is a lot easier as it is now officially available on the Amazon App Store.
