Facebook Gaming Takes The Plunge With Android Cloud Streaming, iOS Support MIA For Now
The typical idea of game streaming services is to bring PC-based games to all platforms, as Microsoft did with Project xCloud. Facebook is doing it differently, though, as the company writes that it is “not spinning off a separate cloud gaming service.” All the games you will have access to are playable through Facebook like you would any other game. You can play with keyboard and mouse, controllers, or touch controls to play the initial offering of mobile native games streaming now.
In the coming weeks, players will also see Dirt Bike Unchained from Red Bull. This new game streaming update also comes with some new features to the platform as a whole. Facebook is adding player names and “gaming-themed avatars for players to represent themselves in-game.” Game developers can also enable cross-play between the cloud and downloaded versions of their games on the Facebook platform. The entire gaming tab is also getting an overhaul to make things easier for “players find new games to try and get back into the ones they’ve played.”
