Last October, Facebook Gaming announced its own cloud gaming service. However, their entrance into the cloud gaming scene is vastly different than that of the services you currently know and love.

Cloud gaming services like Google Stadia and GeForce Now bring console-like gaming directly to your devices, Facebook Gaming's cloud gaming service brings mobile games directly to your device.

At first, this does not sound as intriguing, but when you think about it, some mobile games do not have browser support. This type of cloud gaming service caters to Facebook's current gaming service, where many of the games you can play on Facebook are similar to or port overs of current mobile games.

Better yet, Facebook Gaming's service is still free and offers a wide array of free-to-play mobile games. Interestingly, the service has already grown to over 1.5 million monthly players, and that is only from select locations in the United States.

More coverage

In today's announcement, Facebook announces that their infrastructure now covers 98% of people in mainland United States, with the service beginning to roll out in Canada and Mexico. In addition, Facebook plans to offer the service in Western and Central Europe come early 2022.
