Facebook has been broadening its spectrum of influence in recent weeks and today we are witnessing the arrival of a new platform. Today, Facebook Gaming was announced, a game streaming service a little different from what we expected.
Contrary to what happens with the most popular services of its kind, Facebook Gaming focuses its attention on games developed for Android. It is also worth mentioning that this service consists of free titles only.
Facebook Gaming takes your Android games to any screen
As with all game streaming services, Facebook Gaming’s main goal is to bring your games to all screens. And the fact that it consists only of free titles, means that there will be no costs for the player.
Since Facebook Gaming consists of free Android games, it is legitimate to ask yourself about the advantages of the service. The advantage of the new bet of the social network lies in the fact that you can play on any screen, without the need for any installation.
This is a good alternative to try a certain game before installing it on your smartphone. But since Facebook Gaming is free and cloud-based, you will never have to install a game on your device again, as long as it is available on the social network service.
You will be able to access Facebook Gaming through your computer’s browser or through the Android application. In either situation, you will have a library of games at your disposal that will certainly grow in the coming months.
Other advantages of this service are the multi-platform support. This means that you can play even against those who have the game installed on their smartphone. In addition, your achievements will be synchronized across platforms.
Facebook Gaming outside iOS
Those responsible for Facebook Gaming made a point of stressing that iOS is, for now, outside the scope of their product. Its availability on the Apple platform is uncertain and the fault of the American giant.
As with many other services of its kind, App Store policies prevent Facebook Gaming from getting there. This path may not be viable and even making it available via Safari may have several limitations.
