Facebook Gaming app launches

Facebook Gaming has launched.

The social media network went live with the new app - which is a rival to Twitch and YouTube - early than planned due to the coronavirus lockdown.

Users - who can download it on iOS and Android devices - are able to follow gamers, watch live gaming streams and connect with other games and broadcast themselves.

Facebook executive Fidji Simo told The New York Times: "Investing in gaming in general has become a priority for us because we see gaming as a form of entertainment that really connects people," "We're seeing a big rise in gaming during quarantine."
