After only two years on the market, Facebook Gaming, an app for live-streaming video games, will be discontinued on October 28, 2022. Gothalion, a well-known Twitch streamer, posted a screenshot of a new notice that has emerged on the app informing users of the closure and urging them to retrieve any search history they can.
Not Working Out
As stated in the statement, the specialized app used to view video game livestreams will no longer function, but all streaming capabilities will still be available on the main Facebook app or website.
Still Up for It
Since the app’s inception in 2020, the company has made some big investments in it. In fact, the corporation recently launched an effort dubbed Stars for Gaming Videos on Demand to compete with YouTube. The parent business of Facebook, Meta, is still heavily invested in gaming, probably most visibly with its Meta Quest VR gear.
