Yesterday, we talked about Facebook releasing their own mobile gaming app releasing today and it is now live. However, it's only available on the Google Play Store now and has yet to appear in the Apple App Store. Promptly named Facebook Gaming, it functions the same way as the desktop version allowing you to stream your games or play with your friends and family together.

If you often visit the gaming section on your Facebook account, you can find pretty much everything you want there. The user interface works similarly to the Facebook app except it's all pure gaming content. You can follow popular streamers or games, visit your gaming groups (if you already joined one) as well as choosing casual games (like those quizzes or random generator of a certain topic, but the most important one of all is the streaming function which you can find on the bottom right.

You'd be asked to follow your favourite games and streamers upon entering, or you can just skip it

Streaming!

At the streaming function, you can add your favourite mobile gaming apps there and with just a tap of a button, you can stream live directly to your Facebook account. With that, your friends and family can interact with your during the gameplay. Or you can also choose the share once you're done. It's super easy, barely an inconvenience.

Since mobile gaming is much more popular in Malaysia, we think Facebook gaming could really work. But can they finally challenge YouTube and Twitch now? What do you think? Let us know on our Facebook page and stay tuned for more trending tech news at TechNave.com.
