Facebook created a mobile dedicated gaming app, titled Facebook Gaming, which will be released on April 20th. The gaming app is initially available for Android users, however, an iOS version will be released following approval from Apple. The app will have casual games for individual players, as well as multiplayer games.
However, the main feature of the new dedicated gaming app is the ability to create and watch live streams. This can be done using a Go Live function, which will enable others to watch live gameplay.
The app will not have any advertisements on it, and in place of ads, Facebook will use a star system to generate revenue. Stars have been successful on other game streaming platforms, which is likely why Facebook chose it over advertising.
