Facebook has introduced Fantasy Games, a replacement free prediction platform the corporate describes as a simplified sort of playing fantasy sports. With Fantasy Games, Facebook users on iOS and Android will be ready to predict the result of varied events, including sports games and popular culture happenings. The feature is merely available to some users, however.
Facebook Games is now available to mobile users within the US and Canada. Assuming you reside in one of these countries, you’ll open the Facebook app’s menu and tap the new Fantasy Games option. This may pull up the prediction platform, including the user’s existing leagues, games, and therefore the choice to create a replacement league.
Facebook says users can set leagues to public or private, playing them with only friends and family or with the subject’s wider fanbase. Leaderboards will keep track of users’ scores; the platform will let users share their picks, leave comments, and react to content. Pick & Play Sports is the first game launching with the platform today, but more will follow.
In addition to adding games associated with sports leagues, Facebook says it’s also working on launching games that’ll involve hit shows like Survivor and, therefore, the Bachelorette. Survivor fans, for instance, are going to be ready to use Facebook Fantasy Games to predict teams then potentially receive points supported by the episode’s outcome.
The new Fantasy Games feature rolling bent Facebook mobile users within the US and Canada now; it’s going to take a touch of your time before the Fantasy Games option appears in your bookmarks menu. However, Facebook notes that users also can access the games by clicking on Fantasy Games notifications within the News Feed.
