Facebook Launches Cloud-based Gaming Service That Will Be Free Of Cost
Facebook has launched its latest cloud-based gaming service which is simply titled ‘Facebook Gaming’. This new service by Facebook differs from Microsoft and Google as it is free of cost.
Cloud gaming has been all the hype in recent years with big consoles like Microsoft’s Xbox and Sony’s PlayStation venturing out to the gaming streaming platforms so that users can have a complete online experience of their favourite games. In the race fot the shift to cloud gaming, Facebook has now entered the market with the new ‘Facebook Gaming’ platform. Check out details about the latest platform launched by Facebook in the video below –
The cloud gaming service by Facebook will be available for gamers around the world through the social media platform’s desktop site and the Android App. However, iOS will be missing out on the fun, thanks to their latest cloud gaming guidelines on the App Store. But, this might not come as a surprise to long time Apple device users who already had to adjust to the platform not having either Google Stadia or Microsoft xCloud. Apple has come forward and stated that gaming apps could offer subscriptions to other games in-app, but each game needs to be first approved by the company, which is a long hassle for the game developer.
Besides this, the cloud-based gaming service provided by Facebook will be breaking away from HTML 5 technology to provide much better games. The social media giant’s gaming department is not offering high-graphic based games but is rather promising entertaining games which are superior to the previous games.
Besides this, by allowing people to play popular game titles on their application for free, Facebook directly increases the amount of time people spend on their platform and increase ad revenue for their portal.
The cloud gaming services will be rolled out to users in California, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Washington D.C. Whereas, all the other regions around the world are expected to get the latest service in the coming months. While both Google and Microsoft’s cloud-based gaming is run by a monetary structure, Facebook’s service is free of cost which makes it stand apart from the others.
