Facebook launched its “Cloud gaming service” on Apple Store, offering iPhone users to enjoy a variety of cloud-based games

After eight months of release, the social media giant Facebook has made its cloud-based games available to iPhone users. When Facebook introduced its cloud-based games on the Google Play Store in late October 2020 but refused to bring them to the Apple App Store, many iPhone users were disappointed. However, after a year, Facebook has finally released this game on the Apple App Store.

Residents of the United, States Canada and Mexico can now play this game, however, it is expected that the app will also be released in Austria, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Belgium, France, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdoms and in many more other European countries by 2022. If you enjoy card or puzzle games, you must play this game because it has a variety of card and puzzle games including Solitaire and match-threes. Along with this, Facebook has also added over 25 other cloud-streamed games including Roller Coaster Tycoon Touch, Lego Legacy Heroes Unboxed, Dragon Mania Legends, and the State of Survival. The cloud-based games have nearly 1.5 million players globally, which is why Facebook rolled out this game on app stores to reach a wider audience.

According to reports, the tech giant has also teamed with a well-known game developer ‘Ubisoft,’ to bring Ubisoft’s own game, Assassin’s Creed Rebellion, to its platform. After the partnership with Ubisoft Facebook’s cloud-based gaming service now has almost four gaming partners including some big names such as Atari, Gameloft, FunPlus. Since the game’s release, Apple has not been in favor of featuring this game into its app store; therefore, the question of how Apple agreed to include the game in its app store arises; however, Facebook’s employee Sheryl Sandberg recently claimed that the company has launched an iOS version of its gaming app on the App Store after given a concession to the app store.
