Facebook launches dedicated gaming tab on Facebook app

Friday 15 March 2019 | 10:56 CET | News

Facebook is putting more attention on gaming, TechCrunch reported, saying the company wants to take some of the focus off of Twitch and Youtube, which today dominate the gaming space. Facebook has started rolling out a dedicated Facebook Gaming tab on its Facebook app, to simplify how people find games, streamers and gaming groups, and discover new content. After clicking the new Gaming tab, there will be a feed of content that points to instant games people can play with friends, videos to watch from top streamers, esports organisations and game publishers, and updates from various gaming groups. 

Facebook last year launched Fb.gg, a gaming video hub that provides a collection of all the video games streaming on Facebook, and a way for gamers and fans to interact. The new gaming tab will now further extend the gaming hub’s reach.
