Facebook is continuing to make its video world better and better. The social media giant has announced some major tests for its video service. It looks like Facebook is gearing up to give tough competition to its rival YouTube. Facebook has already launched live video streaming option and 360 degree video support. But currently, Facebook is testing a dedicated news feed for videos.

Facebook has said that this new dedicated video news feed can be accessed via a tab on the iPhone app, while you can access the feed on the left side of the FB page if you are on the web. Social media giant said that this new section will be for, “people to go when they exclusively want to watch video – whether that’s videos they’ve saved for later, or videos from friends, Pages they follow, and other video publishers on Facebook”

Facebook says that it will help people in finding video contents, though the suggestion will be given based on the information you have shared on Facebook. The company said,” This new videos section helps people discover, watch and share videos on Facebook that are relevant to them,” As always, Facebook is testing this new news feed with a small number of people.
