    Hi - I am new and thank you for your help

    I want to find a way to have an extra person in the facebook live video so found out using ipad would work maybe?. ipad asked to download chrome to use camera.



    So now I can't find facebook live button anywhere in chrome.



    (Can find facebook live button in safari but won't let me use camera!)



    Anyone found an answer to this please.



    thank you

    Welcome to iPad Forums!

    You’d need the desktop version of Chrome, so you’d have to do this on a computer, because it won’t work like this on the iPad, afaik.

    I do hope this is what you need:

    When you use a browser on your iPad:
    Help Center

    When you use the iPad app for Facebook:
    Help Center

    As I’ve said before: Safari tells you to go to the Chrome desktop version (for computer), not the mobile app.

    Did you try Live Video in the Facebook iPad app?
