Facebook rolled out its Instant Games platform past year to developers so they could create gaming activities for Messenger and the platform's News Feed.

Sonic Jump from SEGA, developed by SEGA HARDlight, will introduce a new, arcade style adventure to Messenger, featuring classic Sonic enemies, power-ups and traps as players challenge friends to see who can jump the farthest.

The new features arrive as Messenger has quickly expanded its game offerings, which launched with 20 titles. But it's not about the past, Facebook has loads of new stuff for Games on Messenger.

On the one year anniversary of releasing the in app games system Instant Games Facebook has announced an all new Facebook Live system to allow live streaming through Messenger Instant Games onto your feed. Sonic Jump is rolling out now in select regions and will launch globally in the coming weeks.

After launching the Instant Games feature within Facebook Messenger last November, the social giant is integrating livestreaming into that product - bringing Facebook roughly into competition with other "Let's Play" platforms like YouTube and Twitch.

You can activate live streaming by clicking on the new camera icon on the top of Messenger game. Today, the company is announcing a couple of notable new features for this gaming platform, including support for live streaming via Facebook Live and video chatting with fellow gamers. Once this is selected you can choose the audience you wish to broadcast to and add a short description to say something about your video. The feature will allow friends to video chat while simultaneously playing a game against each other. Once players are finished streaming, the stream will then be published to your page or profile - although Facebook says that you can remove the post if you want to.

Video chat will roll out first to Words With Friends from Zynga Inc.in early 2018.

"We're so glad that people are embracing the wonderful experiences game developers are building for Instant Games", Facebook said in its announcement. Games in group video chats are about to start testing soon, so they will be a while off. Looks like Messenger will be getting even more fun in the coming months.
