Angry Birds, Sonic coming to Facebook Messenger games

Facebook Messenger Games List: Launching New Titles, Video Chat And Livestream Features

To mark its one-year anniversary, Facebook is also debuting a couple of new features for its Instant Games: live streaming and video chat.

Facebook has rolled out a new feature that will allow users to livestream the game they are playing on Messenger to their profile or page.

A year of gaming on Facebook Messenger. When we first launched, we had 20 games available in just 30 markets. "If somebody has a community, whether that's five or 10 or a thousand people - ten thousand, a million - they're sharing the games they love with the people they care about, which is their community".

Launching globally in early 2018 is none other than Angry Birds, a new game built for Messenger that will feature classic gameplay with an exciting new way to challenge friends. Interestingly, for what may be a first in games, there are more females on the platform than males.

South Korea, US kick off large-scale air exercise amid North Korean warnings
While the exercise comes on the heels of North Korea's missile test, the timing of the wargames is purely coincidence. North Korea regularly uses its state media to threaten the United States and its allies.

The idea with Instant Games is to boost people's time spent in Messenger by giving them something else to do besides just chat.

Facebook also announced a whole suite of well-known titles set to join Messenger. To start recording, you press the "Start Live Video" button. It's easy to get started: while playing a game, tap the camera icon located in the upper right corner of the game. Just like any post the video can be deleted at any time. Today, the company is announcing a couple of notable new features for this gaming platform, including support for live streaming via Facebook Live and video chatting with fellow gamers.

Live streaming of games is a feature already offered by Twitch Interactive Inc., Google Inc.'s YouTube and Microsoft Corp., but in Facebook's case, at least for now, the feature will be used for the entertainment of friends rather than monetization.

The top three games Australia played in 2017 were Everwing, 8 Ball Pool and Words with Friends.

Angry Birds will be joining the recently launched Tetris which includes all the old modes fans love, like the marathon mode and the ability to play alongside friends.

We're so glad that people are embracing the unbelievable experiences game developers are building for Instant Games.

Published by LINE the game will launch in 2018, bringing the most beloved Disney characters to Messenger where players can collect, connect and pop Tsum Tsum based on the popular Disney Tsum Tsum plushies. To the people who continue to enjoy, share, compete and challenge themselves and their friends to games on Messenger, thanks for playing and game on.
