There’s already Twitch and YouTube, but if you want to stream your Blizzard PC games to another platform, Facebook is your latest option. Starting next month, anyone will be able to stream games like Overwatch, Hearthstone, and World of Warcraft directly to the social media platform.
The Blizzard/Facebook team up also means users will be able to sign up for and log into Battle.net with their Facebook account. Blizzard said in a press release that this “will pave the way for new social functionality,” though it did not confirm any other features aside from streaming gameplay–finding friends seems like a logical feature, but it was not confirmed.
This was discussed on Final Encounter Cast Episode 21.
Twitch and YouTube is already dominating live streaming services. Is Facebook over reaching by entering the live streaming fray? Will you use Facebook’s service? Let us know in the comments below!
