(Menlo Park, CA) -- Users of the Facebook Gaming app will have to make a switch at the end of October.

Meta announced the standalone app will no longer be available come October 28th. Facebook Gaming will then only be available by going to the Gaming tab in the main Facebook app.

The app launched in 2020 for video game streamers to share content as Facebook's way of competing with Twitch and YouTube.
