Facebook's latest Live Video will be available on Android devices in the coming week.

With the company launching it on iOS, the Live Video will become available on American phones initially, reports Mashable.

Even as Live is being made available to users in 30 countries, it will move to other locations in a few weeks.

According to Facebook, people watch Live Video three times longer than when it is not live. More than 50 percent of Android users are fans of Live Video.

Users need to decide if the video can be viewed by friends, other public members or groups, said PC World. Videos can be saved the Timelines of the users unless they get deleted.

Facebook has also put out a list of tips for using Live.

This is a great way to connect people, said Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg. In an interview with Venture Beat he said: "'Live' is going to be an awesome thing for public figures... imagine your favorite public figure or politician having the power to broadcast from their pocket, go live, have an audience of thousands of people."

"There's a lot more that needs to be done to give people the ability to connect with the people and figures they're interested in. I think you're going to see a lot of that on Instagram and Facebook, and if the Twitter folks do a good job, I think you'll see a lot more of that on Twitter too," he added.

Last year, Facebook Live was first introduced only for a few verified accounts and celebrities in the U.S., but now the company is expanding its borders.
