Facebook Gaming app to shut down
News in brief

Meta’s Twitch-esque gaming livestreaming app Facebook Gaming is being shut down on October 28.

The app was originally launched in 2020.

Facebook Gaming was created in 2018 to compete with YouTube and Amazon’s Twitch.

A web-based version of the livestreaming platform will continue to exist on Facebook.

Meta, Facebook’s parent company, has in recent years primarily sought inroads into gaming through developing its Horizon Worlds metaverse.
