Facebook Messenger Games celebrate one year; rolls out live streaming feature

The feature will initially debut next year in Zynga's Words with Friends, before expanding to other titles. Messenger has 70 games available globally. Beginning today, however, users will be able to livestream their gaming sessions, Venturebeat reports. Going live in an Instant Game initiates a stream on your Facebook profile or page, which posts as a traditional video after the broadcast has concluded.

"I absolutely believe that the streaming community, the influencer community, will have the opportunity to see this as something they want to pick up on", Facebook's global director of games partnerships, Leo Olebe, told Venturebeat. "They may not. Who knows?"

Since splitting off from the core Facebook app in 2014, Messenger has expanded beyond being a simple messaging app and now offers everything from making payments to friends, ordering an Uber ride, group video chat and interacting with a wide variety of bots.

Facebook's Messenger games launched a year ago, and on Thursday the company announced it was rolling out new livestreaming and video chat features.

World War Z trailer unveiled for PS4, Xbox One, and PC
As you can see in the trailer, unlike Resident Evil or DayZ , the zombie hordes aren't the shambling, Romero-style of the undead. World War Z was originally released in 2006 as a book by Max Brooks called World War Z : An Oral History of the Zombie War.

Messenger's move to enter the live streaming space follows efforts already led by YouTube and Twitch, but their main focus is on the casual gamers, at least for now.
