The popular app survived a little over four years – but is now being eradicated.

“We want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for everything you’ve done to build a thriving community for gamers and fans since this app first launched,” Facebook said in an email to users.

“This has truly been a community-led effort to bring new gameplay features to Facebook.”

The app is scheduled to be removed from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store on October 28, 2022.

It will stop working if you still have the app installed.

Facebook says you can download all of your search data in the app before it shuts down.

It’s still possible to find streamers in the actual Facebook app in the gaming section.

But the app itself will no longer work on iOS or Android.

Launched back in June 2018, Facebook Gaming offers a ready-to-stream pool of developers.

It was intended as a rival to Twitch, allowing gamers to stream content while interacting with fans.

And Facebook partnered with select video games so viewers could earn in-game rewards.

Parent company Meta keeps its gaming efforts alive, but only within the core Facebook app.

“Our mission to connect gamers, fans and developers to the games they love hasn’t changed,” Facebook said.

“And you can still find your games, streamers and groups when you visit Gaming in the Facebook app.”
