Since launching Facebook Live last summer, we’ve been surprised and delighted by the ways in which people, public figures, and publishers have been using live video to connect with friends and fans around the world.

To give our community a new and fun way to share live video, last week we enabled the ability to go live on Facebook from MSQRD, an app that lets you try out different masks and effects. Through MSQRD, you can get creative while talking live with your friends and fans on Facebook – turn into a zombie, give yourself cat ears, or even go deep-sea diving. There are dozens of masks to choose from, and new masks are being frequently added. Plus, as Candace Payne recently showed us, using Facebook Live with your favorite mask can be a lot of fun.

To go live from MSQRD:

  • Download or update your MSQRD app (available on iOS version 8.4 or later)
  • Select “Live”
  • Select the profile or Page going live, add a description, and choose your audience
  • Go Live!

While live you can swipe through different masks, remove the mask completely, and see live comments and reactions. Check out a few live videos from MSQRD below, and give it a try!
