Facebook is celebrating the first year of games on Messenger by introducing new titles and a few new features, starting with the ability to livestream them to friends.
A year of gaming on Facebook Messenger.
Last November, Facebook launchedInstant Games, a new platform for gaming with friends inside the Messenger chat app. Of those games, 200 million minutes have been used collecting cherries, apples and zapping ghosts in Pacman, while more than 692 million words have been created in Words With Friends.
Amsterdam-based CoolGames is working with Rovio to bring Angry Birds to Messenger's Instant Games platform in early 2018.
Sonic Jump from SEGA, developed by SEGA HARDlight, will introduce a new, arcade style adventure to Messenger, featuring classic Sonic enemies, power-ups and traps as players challenge friends to see who can jump the farthest. The Facebook Messenger version is already launching in some regions and will be available worldwide "in the coming weeks", said Facebook.
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.
Another new feature coming to Messenger will be live-streaming of games. Users can publish the clip on their page or profile when the live game is over, or can delete it.
Besides the live streaming feature, people will also be able to video chat while playing a game. To use live streaming, you just tap on the new camera icon at the top right of the screen while gaming, then add a short description to be shared alongside your post. Games in group video chats are about to start testing soon, so they will be a while off. Looks like Messenger will be getting even more fun in the coming months.
Additionally, Facebook said its planning to roll out a test soon to allow users to play games while video chatting with someone else.
To mark its one-year anniversary, Facebook is also debuting a couple of new features for its Instant Games: live streaming and video chat.
When Instant Games first launched it offered 20 games across 30 markets, including titles like Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and Words With Friends Frenzy.
