Facebook has decided to up its game in the gaming sector and is going to launch a Facebook gaming app that allows you to focus on gaming, see other players streams, and do much more. All of this is indirectly an effect of people staying home due to COVID-19.
The app was being tested since that last 18 months, but it has finally come to fruition now as it is going to be released soon. It lets you view other players have a go at their games or even stream your gameplay. You have a feature called “Go Live,” which enables you to stream all the games that you play even in your mobile directly to Facebook, which is something that not all other apps can boast of doing.
Monetization this early is not expected and not upcoming either. There will be no advertisements, although you can earn stars by paying money. Facebook will ponder on this topic after the app is well set and built.
This app is an answer to the fact that Facebook lags behind when it comes to streaming games as compared to Twitch and YouTube. In the first three months, it could only register about 550 million views, whereas YouTube and Twitch got about 1 billion and 3 billion views, respectively.
The company says that it will soon gain traction because of the lockdown across the globe. Now only time can tell what will happen.
