Facebook adds support for live streaming and video chats to Messenger games

Facebook Messenger Games List: Launching New Titles, Video Chat And Livestream Features

Once the streaming ends, the video will be published to your page so that friends can watch it later and you can also remove the post at any time. "To the people who continue to enjoy, share, compete and challenge themselves and their friends to games on Messenger, thanks for playing and game on".

It is just a year ago that Facebook had introduced the instant games section on Messenger.

Live streaming of games is a feature already offered by Twitch Interactive Inc., Google Inc.'s YouTube and Microsoft Corp., but in Facebook's case, at least for now, the feature will be used for the entertainment of friends rather than monetization.

With livestreaming, which has begun rolling out, gamers are able to stream their gaming exploits via Facebook Live. Once chose, you can pick the crowd you need to communicate to and add a short portrayal to say something in regards to your video. And now after a year, they provide more than 70 games and more than 100 developers are working on it across the world.

Games are an authentic extension of the connection people feel in Messenger - a fun, interactive and powerful way to connect to people you chat with daily or friends and family who live far away. Just like any post the video can be deleted at any time.

Another new feature coming to Messenger will be live-streaming of games.

This is a great tool for broadcasters or just friends to use to enhance their connections and conversations with friends. The feature will allow friends to video chat while simultaneously playing a game against each other. Interestingly, for what may be a first in games, there are more females on the platform than males. We're excited to begin a test soon that will enable people to play games with each other while video chatting.

New games include the ever-popular Angry Birds from CoolGames, the same developers as the recently added Tetris, which will launch globally in early 2018. It will have classic gameplay with an exciting feature to challenge friends.

Facebook introduced games in its messenger app previous year and there were about 20 games initially. Additionally the social media platform will also launch other games like - Sonic Jump from SEGA, Disney Tsum Tsum and new casual puzzle games as well.

"We're so glad that people are embracing the wonderful experiences game developers are building for Instant Games", Facebook said in its announcement.

Over the next few weeks and months, Facebook is adding more titles to Instant Games, which will join original games, like Pac-Man, Space Invaders and Words With Friends Frenzy.
