Facebook previously ran into some trouble when attempting to bring its Facebook Gaming app to iOS devices, but has been able to sidestep the App Store’s restrictions via its web app. The web app, which can be accessed through an iOS device’s browser, allows users to experience a number of free and free-to-play games without the need to download anything.
Apple’s decision to prevent third-party apps from acting as a game distribution platform is hotly contested by developers large and small. Services like Amazon’s Luna and Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass have sidestepped the issue by simply not using a downloadable app on iOS devices, and Facebook is following suit. Instead of installing anything, you bookmark the Facebook Gaming homepage in your mobile web browser and visit the link to start playing.
