Facebook has launched its application centre — App Center in India and six other countries, a move that will help users to find games, music services and media content easily.
The social networking giant had launched the App Center in the U.S. last month.
“The App Center is now available to everyone in the U.S., Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, and the U.K.,” Facebook software engineer Drew Hoskins said on the blog on Monday.
In addition, Facebook said that it will be launching App Center to users in Brazil, France, Germany, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, and Turkey in the coming weeks.
The launch is part of a plan to expand its reach to a large number of Facebook users, with 80 per cent residing outside the U.S. and Canada.
The users can access new App Center icon located on the left side of the home page on Facebook.com recommending apps to users based on their interests. Additionally, the service is also available on Apple and Android mobile devices.
“App Center makes it easier for people around the world to discover the best apps and games for them, wherever they are,” Mr. Hoskins added.
