Since last year Facebook trying to focus more on Video content and video related tweaks to compete Youtube, which is the video streaming giant in the current scenario.
People already know the fact that most of the videos posted on Facebook are downloaded copies of Youtube videos and reuploaded to Facebook without worrying about copyright issues. If anyone of the copyright owner claims about any uploaded video on Facebook, then the social networking firm is taking down the video.
Personally, this happened to me. Few Facebook pages and groups uploaded my Youtube videos without my permission, I found them and made a copyright claim to Facebook, and Facebook immediately took action.
Facebook Android app now lets you save any video to your Facebook app. One of the Facebook user got the new feature and shared the above screenshot in which you can clearly observe that the video is “Downloading.”
Here downloading means you can’t download the video to your smartphone’s storage, it only stores on your Facebook application. The reason for Facebook not letting us to download any video to our local storage is that it is afraid about reuploading the Facebook videos to other services like Youtube, Vimeo, etc. So Facebook limits the download process to the FB application only. The new feature is available only on Beta versions 85 and 86 of the Facebook Android app.
