Games are an authentic extension of the connection people feel in Messenger — a fun, interactive and powerful way to connect to people you chat with daily or friends and family who live far away. It’s with this spirit we’re introducing two new features to Instant Games that will help you engage and connect with those you care about in new and different ways.
First, we’re launching live streaming, which will start to roll out today, to gamers who love to share their playthroughs and engage in a little smack talk. The new live streaming capability via Facebook Live makes it simple for people to play and share their experiences with those who love games on Messenger. It’s easy to get started: while playing a game, tap the camera icon located in the upper right corner of the game. Once selected, you can choose the audience you want to broadcast to and add a short description to say something about your video. To start recording, just press the “Start Live Video” button. Once the broadcast ends the video will be published to your Page or profile so that fans and friends who missed it can watch at a later time. You can remove the video post at any time, just like any other post.
