Players of Blizzard Entertainment games can now livestream their gameplay directly to Facebook.

The social network and the game developer announced in June that Blizzard would integrate Facebook Login and the Facebook Live application-programming interface into its games, with the Facebook Live API allowing Blizzard’s players to stream gameplay directly to their Facebook Timelines.

The integration went live Friday in the Americas, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand, with global access coming soon, and Facebook said in an email to SocialTimes:

Blizzard streaming is accessible in the top-right corner of the Blizzard client. Once you’ve updated your Blizzard client on PC, simply click the stream button, use Facebook Login to allow permission for Blizzard to post to Facebook and you can stream your gameplay. Mac support for Blizzard Streaming is coming soon.

Gamers: Will you use this feature?
