Facebook Gaming already existed as a website and within the main Facebook application itself, but as of today you can download it on your phone and watch streamers doing their thing on a much smaller screen.

To access it, you will need a Facebook account, but it is autonomous; therefore, at least you can watch some streams without also being forced to see that your friends are posting things about conspiracy theory, politics or cute animals.

In addition to following streamers and engaging in heated debates with other viewers, you can also play the Facebook game library directly from the app. It also facilitates mobile streaming, allowing players to view the live gameplay of mobile games without further effort.

Facebook says it will not use ads to support the app, but rather a cut of streamers, although the Play Store still claims it "contains ads".

Facebook Gaming is now available for devices Android, with the iOS version coming soon.

It is also worth remembering that other streaming platforms also have their apps, so it was a great step taken by Facebook to be able to compete on equal terms with its competitors.
