Facebook Live can now broadcast Messenger games

Facebook Messenger Games List: Launching New Titles, Video Chat And Livestream Features Facebook Live can now broadcast Messenger games

The new features arrive as Messenger has quickly expanded its game offerings, which launched with 20 titles.

The idea with Instant Games is to boost people's time spent in Messenger by giving them something else to do besides just chat.

After launching the Instant Games feature within Facebook Messenger last November, the social giant is integrating livestreaming into that product - bringing Facebook roughly into competition with other "Let's Play" platforms like YouTube and Twitch.

As Games on Facebooks Messenger service turns 1-year old, they've taken the wraps off some new features that will get users excited including live streaming of games, multi-player gaming in video chat and of course more games, including the game that's everywhere: Angry Birds. But it's not about the past, Facebook has loads of new stuff for Games on Messenger. This new feature also includes a handful of new games being added to the app, with some of them originating from the world's most popular game franchises of all time.

Once the broadcast ends, the video will be uploaded to either your Page or Profile depending on where you streamed to. To start the video users can press the "Start Live Video" button. Just like any post the video can be deleted at any time.

Facebook also announced that it plans to test a feature that lets users video chat while gaming, as well. The games will be multi-player like Words With Friends from Zynga which will be the first game to launch.

You can activate live streaming by clicking on the new camera icon on the top of Messenger game.

Over the next few weeks and months, Facebook is adding more titles to Instant Games, which will join original games, like Pac-Man, Space Invaders and Words With Friends Frenzy. Angry Birds will be coming to the app in early 2018 with the ability to play with friends. Sonic Jump is rolling out now in select regions and will launch globally in the coming weeks. Other games lined up for 2018 are Sonic Jump by SEGA and new casual game based on Puzzle & Dragons.

GungHo Online Entertainment, Inc., makers of the hit game Puzzle & Dragons, will launch a new casual puzzle game for both existing Puzzle & Dragons fans and new players to enjoy.
