Facebook Gaming Application Officially Launched After 18 Months Test


Facebook Gaming Go Live


The Facebook application has a function called 'Go Live', which allows users to live stream mobile games from their mobile to Facebook. This application eliminates the need for software and hardware from third parties who are usually required to live streaming themselves while playing games.

Alternative Choice Twitch from Amazon, YouTube from Google, and Mixer from Microsoft


Facebook's step is a big boost in the gaming world as the world community faces a corona pandemic and only has activity at home. This application made by Mark Zuckerberg could be an alternative choice besides Twitch from Amazon, YouTube from Google, and Mixer from Microsoft.

Facebook Game App Monitization


At this time, Facebook does not present advertisements in applications, and monetization is still very limited. But it allows users to get money through the 'star' category because fans make payments to watch.

As quoted by CNBC, Monday, April 20, 2020, this application will initially be available in the Google Play application store. The iOS version is still in the process of being worked on.

Facebook Streaming Hours


Facebook app step is relatively late when compared to YouTube and Twitch. Because, according to research conducted by Streamlabs and Stream Hatchet, in the first three months of 2020, Facebook's streaming platform recorded nearly 554 million hours, compared with 1.1 billion hours watching via YouTube and 3.1 billion for Twitch.

But the company says more than 700 million users have interacted with game content on the main Facebook application. Facebook hopes to get a lot of traction through Facebook Gaming, especially because of the coronavirus pandemic and many regional lockdown policies today.
