Facebook has also added a new gaming feature that will have people spending far more time on the platform than most people have in recent years. They have officially gone live with the ability to stream any game made by Blizzard Entertainment. They will do this live through the Facebook Live platforms. Gamers have been waiting for this feature since it was announced in June, so there will likely be a lot of people trying it out.

Overwatch and Hearthstone has been so popular, so we know that streamers and fans like the feature, reasons Nerd Reactor.
The live streaming option is available on every single Blizzard game for the Americas, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. The feature is only available on PC right now, but MAC support is going to be coming quickly.
Since Twitch.tv is already dominating the streaming video game, it will definitely be an interesting turn to see how people react to all of the new possibilities. It might make them all better because they will have to compete against each other for viewers. Or everyone else will fall to the giant.
Whatever the plan is, it is obvious that Facebook is going to be relying on live streaming of all sorts as part of their core strategy for future business, and they are willing to engage with some of the top-tier businesses to get the most out of it.
