If you feel like playing Facebook video games with your friends, but the Facebook Gaming icon does not appear on your mobile or PC screen, we recommend that you continue reading.
Here we are going to show you in a few steps everything you have to do to access Facebook Gaming, a section that will allow you to play all the video games on the social network for free and without downloading anything.
The Facebook Gaming icon doesn’t appear and you can’t play either? So you can solve it
Before we show you the tutorials that will allow you to solve this problem, we recommend that you update the Facebook app manually. There are times when new features only appear in the latest versions of the app.
If this were the case, updating the application of the social network could solve the problem. If the Facebook Gaming icon still does not appear, you will have to try all the solutions that we are going to show you below.
Clear the cache of the Facebook app
First of all the solutions to make the Facebook Gaming icon appear on your Facebook account are quite simple. You just have to clear the app cache on your Android phone, how do you do this? As follows:
- Enter the settings of your Android mobile device.
- Go to “Applications and notifications”.
- Open the Facebook app from your phone’s settings.
- Click on the option that says “Force stop”, this will cause the app to close.
- Hit the option that says “Accept” to force close the Facebook app.
- Go to “Storage and Cache.”
- And finally, give the option “Clear cache”, so that the Facebook cache is eliminated.
Having cleared the app’s cache, we recommend restarting the mobile device. Once the terminal has restarted, you will have to reopen the app to verify if the icon appears on the main Facebook screen.
Log out and log back in with your Facebook account
If the Facebook Gaming icon still does not appear after clearing the cache of the Facebook app, you will have to log out of your account. This brings out the new functions and features that the social network has launched (in some cases).
- Within Facebook, you must click on the three horizontal stripes that are located at the top right of the screen.
- The Facebook menu will open, scroll to the bottom of the screen and click on “Sign out”.
- Wait for Facebook to log out.
- Once closed, click on your account to be able to log back into Facebook.
In case you want to play on PC and you cannot see the Facebook Gaming icon in the web version of the social network, you will also have to close the session from the browser.
Download the beta version of Facebook
Is the Facebook Gaming icon still not appearing in the social network app? Do not despair, you can try one more solution. It consists of downloading Facebook Beta, a trial version that allows you to access the new functions before anyone else.
It is worth mentioning that the beta version of Facebook may have errors. Being a trial version, the app is usually a bit unstable. If you experience unexpected closings, or the language of Facebook is in English, do not panic, they are errors that usually say “present” in Facebook Beta
If you got this far, it is because none of the solutions we provide above has worked for you. This can happen, as there are times when Facebook “hides” access to a section in certain regions.
Luckily, there is a little trick that allows you to enter Facebook Gaming to play all the video games on the social network, what is that trick? Enter from the Facebook menu.
How to enter Facebook Gaming from mobile?
To access Facebook Gaming from a mobile device, it is necessary to follow all these steps that we show you below:
- The first thing you have to do is open the Facebook app from your mobile device.
- Once inside the social network, you must click on the three horizontal stripes that are shown at the top right of the screen.
- The Facebook menu will open, there you will have to click on the option that says “Videogames”.
- Therefore, you will have to click on the tab that says “Play”.
- All video games that you can play on Facebook will be displayed. Click on any of them to start playing.
- And finally, you will have to click on “Play” to be able to enjoy the online games that Facebook offers.
How to enter Facebook Gaming from the PC?
On the other hand, if you want to play Facebook Gaming video games from your PC, you will have to perform these steps:
- Enter the Facebook website from your PC (we recommend using Chrome).
- Once you are in the social network, you will have to click on the option that says “Play”, which is located on the left side of the screen.
- Click on the game you want to play.
- Wait for the game to load completely (it is usually not more than 2 or 3 minutes of waiting).
- If you did all the steps correctly, you will be able to play any Facebook Gaming game on your PC.
For now, this is the only way to access Facebook Gaming if the icon in question does not appear. Eventually, and when Facebook decides, that “shortcut” should be shown in all versions of the social network for Android and iOS, as well as in all countries.
