Facebook has introduced a cloud gaming feature that lets you stream several mobile games through its Android app and the web without downloads or worries about performance. Facebook added that it chose “latency-tolerant” games for its first proper foray into cloud gaming, but that you might still notice hiccups. Facebook game streaming will first be available in California, Texas, and states in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic like New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. On top of a redesigned Facebook Gaming web portal with easier discovery, the social network is debuting Cloud Playable Ads for Android and iOS users in the US. Unlike Amazon or Google, Facebook has no ambitions of replacing classic console or PC gaming with its cloud offering.
