You Can Now Comment on Facebook Posts with Video, Here's How

Sometimes people on Facebook post statuses that leave you lost for words. If that's the case, try responding to it with a video. Facebook announced in a blog post that new functionality has been rolled out to all users that lets them reply to posts with video.

The feature was developed as a prototype at a Facebook hackathon earlier this year. It follows a slew of other multimedia reply options including photos and stickers. You won't be able to use just any YouTube video, though -- you have to use a video you have saved locally to your phone or computer.

Here's how to reply with comments on Facebook.

1. Click the camera icon in the "Write a comment..." box.

2. Select a video to use.

3. Wait for the video to upload.

4. Your video is ready to watch.
