Facebook smart tv app that allows users to get various videos, shows and live streams on the platform may no longer be available for new mobile. Some users say that they can’t access the app after its latest update.
“Some Apple TV users can no longer access the app.”
In a thread on MacRumors, a user shares an image of the prompt they received after trying to open Facebook Watch on their Apple TV 4K: The Facebook Watch TV app is no longer available, but you can still find plenty of videos on Facebook at www .facebook.com/watch.
Several other users report having the same experience. Facebook launched its Watch app on Apple TV in 2017 after first launching on Samsung Smart TVs.
The app is also available on several other smart TVs and consoles, as well as Facebook’s mobile app and desktop site. Users who want to continue using the Watch app on Apple TV should be able to cast Watch from their phone to their TV, but that’s not as convenient as simply opening an app.
It’s unclear if the Facebook Watch app is no longer available due to a bug caused by the latest update, or if Facebook has completely removed the app from the Apple TV. Apple TV is still listed as one of the supported platforms for Facebook Watch. The Verge reached out to Apple and Facebook for comment, but didn’t immediately receive a response.
