Facebook enters the world of gaming in the cloud: The company has launched the "Facebook Gaming" service, which will allow you to play a wide variety of games without the need for a dedicated remote or software installation.

Although it is a cloud gaming service, it seems that the company is not going to compete with the services of Nvidia, Microsoft and Google, and focuses mainly on mobile games that can also be played on a computer.

Another major difference lies in the fact that Facebook's cloud games service is launched with free games, and it is possible that in the future the company will charge money for this, but currently the service is provided at no cost.

Some games have in-game purchases, and if you connect to the game on your smartphone via Facebook, every purchase you make will be synced on both Facebook and smartphone.

What’s more, Facebook supports Cross Play, used to be able to play the cloud version of the game and challenge the players on the smartphone.

This is a service that offers a fast and free way to try out new games, and to maintain privacy you can also set a separate player and avatar name from the Facebook account.

The company hopes to change the way games are advertised, and instead of a standard screenshot or short clip of the game, developers will be able to create demo versions of the game, which will be available to users immediately and for free.

Google and Microsoft have tried this in the past with paid apps, but to no avail.

For now, the social networking giant is offering a limited range of genres and as streaming technology improves, so will it add new action and adventure games.

Passed now you can play on asphalt 9, and later the game "Dirt Bike Unchained" will be added.

As of this stage, Apple users will not be able to enjoy the service, while Android and browser users will be able to use the cloud gaming service.
