Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as gaming eventually becomes a hobby for all of us, Facebook has launched its Gaming app earlier on Android and has now made the app available to iOS users. The new app is a competitor to Twitch and YouTube Gaming.

To build this platform, Facebook has partnered with Microsoft to bring over the platform’s popular features on the gaming platform.

However, take a look at how you can get started with the Facebook Gaming platform and how to download the app.

Facebook Gaming is a platform similar to Twitch and YouTube Gaming, but with a few more features, especially for Android users. The gaming platform hosts home to a lot of streamers and influencers.

It also allows normal users like us to start live streams and showcase our gameplay.

Apart from the streaming factor, the platform allows users to join groups centred around particular games you might like. It even has a mini-games section, which consists of a lot of interesting and non-time consuming games like Ludo Club, Water Slide, OMG and more.

You can play these games without having to download any third-party apps.

However, you can also play mini-games with your group members.
