Share Facebook Video on WhatsApp

I have listed down two methods via which you will be easily able to send Facebook videos to WhatsApp.

Method 1 – Manually


1) This is a bit manual way where you need to first download video from Facebook on your Android device.

2) Next, open your WhatsApp app.

3) Open the chat with whom you want to share & tap on the attachment icon.

4) From there you can tap on videos, it will navigate you to the gallery from where you can select the downloaded video you want to share.


For iPhone/iPad, use File Manger app like Filemaster to download the video.

After you have downloaded the Facebook video then you can easily send the video through WhatsApp on iPhone using the Filemaster app.

This is how you can send a Facebook video on WhatsApp manually. This method will work for iPhone as well as for Android devices.

Method 2 – Directly

In this method, we will be using an app to share Facebook video on WhatsApp. You don’t have to download a video from Facebook and then share it to WhatsApp. This all can be achieved via a single app but only in Android.

1) Download Video Downloader for Facebook app from Google Play Store.

4) The best part of using this app is, it intelligently categorizes the videos as “News Feed Videos”, “Timeline Videos” and others. So according to your choice you can directly look for which video you want to share on WhatsApp and does not have to browse the whole news feed to find videos. In this article, I have taken News Feed videos. You will see the below screen having newsfeed videos. Tap on any video you want to send it to WhatsApp.
