The Facebook Gaming App has been released and is at present available for Android smartphones/tablets and Smart TVs.
Facebook has been experimenting with gaming to keep its huge social media population busy and enthralled. It had launched its own gaming platform in 2018. Now, Facebook is taking it forward with a dedicated App for playing games and live-streaming, watching, etc.
Facebook gaming App was available for beta testers since March 2020. The final version was to be released in June 2020 but was preponed by Facebook today in view of the current Corona Virus lockdown. Facebook hopes to get maximum eyeballs for its Facebook Gaming App as people are staying home due to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown.
