What time is the Facebook F8 stream?

The Facebook F8 stream takes place on April 30 at 7AM PT / 10AM ET. While we don’t know exactly what will be on offer during F8, there are enough large products and services making an appearance that there’s bound to be some juicy reveals.

It’s been a rough year for Facebook. Between misreporting video ad consumption data, sharing users’ private messages, and even labelling Shacknews’ Facebook page as spam, the giant tech company has lost face with a lot of people. Here’s hoping that whatever is shown at F8 will help improve Facebook and push it toward a brighter future.

Facebook’s F8 stream isn’t the only major stream occurring this week. Gamers all around the world are preparing to get their eyes on more Borderlands 3 goodness on May 1. With Facebook shifting toward gaming with Oculus and their own gaming division, there’s now even more competition on the field.

Be sure to keep it locked to Shacknews as we cover everything coming out of F8 2019!
