Filed in Blog by on April 21, 2020 0 Comments

Today, Facebook launched a new mobile app for its game streaming service Facebook Gaming. The app collects each of Facebook’s gaming-related services together including streaming, social features, and games. The app is currently available on Android and Facebook has confirmed that an iOS version is “in the works.”

The app is the latest in Facebook’s efforts to compete with Twitch in the gaming streaming market. In recent months, the company pulled several streamers away from Twitch with exclusive contracts including top Hearthstone streamer Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang and former world #1 Super Smash Bros. pro Gonzalo “ZeRo” Barrios. In February, Facebook also signed a streaming deal with former UFC fighter Ronda Rousey.
