US tech giant Facebook launched on Monday morning a free-to-play cloud gaming feature on its social media platform, allowing users all over the world to stream and play games without downloading them. Some of the games include “WWE SuperCard” and “Asphalt 9: Legends.”

In a blog post, the social media platform said that “We’re not spinning off a separate cloud gaming service,” adding that all cloud-streamed games can be played on the platform’s gaming tab or News Feed.

Facebook said that the feature will be available to Android and web users for now, while it was working on alternative options to launch the feature on Apple’s iOS.

“Apple treats games differently and continues to exert control over a very precious resource,” the social media platform said, pointing out it is unsure if launching on Apple’s app store is a “viable” path.

According to a Business Insider report, Facebook’s gaming feature is smaller in scale than premium cloud-based game streaming services like Google’s Stadia, Nvidia’s GeForce NOW or Amazon.com’s Luna.
