It's taken a month, but the Live tab on Facebook has now started appearing for Android app users.

Back in April, the social network announced that video was going to be even more of priority for the company, with users being offered a dedicated page to find live streams.

Android users are starting to see the Live tab in the centre of the screen, pushing out Messenger from its spot.

Clicking on the Live option brings up a scrolling stream of video.

Anyone watching the feed can then react and comment in real time.

As in usual Facebook comments, viewers can select Love, Haha, Wow, Sad or Angry and the reactions animate onto the stream.

As networks fight to get people to use - and stay - in their social spaces, many are putting more emphasis on video.

"We've seen that on average people watch a live video more than three times longer when it is live compared to when it is not live," says Facebook.

Live video feeds will be categorised, into subjects such as world news, funny, food and politics, which users can then add to their preferences.
