Facebook Messenger app to add live streaming and more games in 2018
08 December, 2017, 12:20 | Author: Oscar Goodwin
Messenger is also bringing new features to Instant Games including the ability to live stream your play via Facebook Live and share it with all of your friends on your account.
To begin the live-stream, press the "Start Live Video" button and you're off. However, in Facebook's case, the addition is more casual - it's more about sharing with friends, not monetizing a community through subscriptions, game sales, or custom chat icons, as you'd find on Twitch or YouTube, for example. Of those games, 200 million minutes have been used collecting cherries, apples and zapping ghosts in Pacman, while more than 692 million words have been created in Words With Friends.
Once selected, you can choose precisely who to broadcast to, and add a short description to get your viewers interested.
In an effort to provide something new, Facebook has announced support for live streaming via Facebook Live and video chatting with fellow gamers.
While the live-streaming feature is available now, Facebook is also promising more for 2018, including the ability to play games alongside a video chat. Once players are finished streaming, the stream will then be published to your page or profile - although Facebook says that you can remove the post if you want to.
The new features arrive as Messenger has quickly expanded its game offerings, which launched with 20 titles. Fans and friends will be able to catch up on anything they missed at any time. Show off your skills and high scores or just hang out in Words with Friends online from your mobile. Twelve months on and developers excited by the platform have been knocking out customized versions of their popular games, expanding the count to 70. The new games won't be launching until 2018 though.
The big new game coming is Angry Birds which will join the Messenger games line-up in early 2018.
Sonic Jump from SEGA, developed by SEGA HARDlight, will introduce a new, arcade style adventure to Messenger, featuring classic Sonic enemies, power-ups and traps as players challenge friends to see who can jump the farthest.
There's also a series of new titles such as Sonic Jump and Disney Tsum Tsum.
"We're so glad that people are embracing the awesome experiences game developers are building for Instant Games", Facebook said in its announcement.
More information on the live streaming and new games will be coming in the new year when the app updates.
