Facebook’s cloud gaming service is now available for Apple users

Facebook has announced the launch of its cloud gaming service to Apple devices. Facebook’s cloud games are currently available in the US and select regions in Canada and Mexico.

Vivek Sharma – Vice President of Gaming at Facebook – revealed that with the new Apple policy, Facebook has resorted to web apps:

“We’ve come to the same conclusion as others: web apps are the only option for streaming cloud games on iOS at the moment. As many have pointed out, Apple’s policy to ‘allow’ cloud games on the App Store doesn’t allow for much at all. Apple’s requirement for each cloud game to have its own page, go through review, and appear in search listings defeats the purpose of cloud gaming. These roadblocks mean players are prevented from discovering new games, playing cross-device, and accessing high-quality games instantly in native iOS apps — even for those who aren’t using the latest and most expensive devices.”

So – how do you access Facebook’s cloud games? Don’t worry, just follow these steps to gain access to the service:

  1. Open Safari on your iOS device
  2. Type in on the Safari browser
  3. Choose from the list of cloud games to play
  4. You can save your favourite games on your home screen for quick access
