On the brighter side, this means the Facebook watch is free, however; you need a Facebook account to access this feature. The feature is a tab located in the Facebook menu like the Facebook Marketplace or Facebook Dating.

- Select “Watch”. You will be re-directed to a new page with a huge load of videos to select from.
There is comedy, sports, documentaries, stories, short movies, talent shows, games, music, and so on. Facebook also categorized the videos into different sections. Just click on a preferred section and start watching.
