Following the release of Instant Games on Messenger last year, Facebook is now introducing a new social feature that lets users broadcast their gaming experience live to friends and family in real-time through Facebook Live.
To begin sharing gameplay with other Facebook Messenger users, players can tap the camera icon while playing games like Arkanoid, EverWing and Endless Lake. After sharing, a user's broadcast can be published to a page or profile so that others can be included if they missed the content being shared live, or wish to watch it at a later time.
As well as being able to share real-time gameplay through Facebook Messenger, social media site users will also have the option to share their experiences in the Facebook News Feed.
