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.
You’re able to jump back into the public conversation at any time, and you can still continue chatting with your friends via Messenger after the broadcast ends.
Currently this feature is only available on iOS, and look forward to making it available more broadly later this summer. If you’ve already tested Live Chat with Friends, tell us your experience in the comments below.
Facebook also launched Live With so you can hang out together with your friends while you are Live, no matter where you are, and broadcast the video to your viewers.
To invite a friend to join you in your live video
1. Select a guest from the Live Viewers section, or tap a comment from the viewer you want to invite.
2. Your friend will have the choice 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).
