Facebook Launches tvOS SDK

Application developers looking to take more advantage of Apple TV will be pleased to know that Facebook just announced the beta launch of a new SDK for tVOS, which it says will help them “build immersive social experiences” on the platform.

The SDK will enable developers to integrate Facebook Login, Share to Facebook, and Faceabook Analytics for Apps into their apps.

“In the same way that the Apple tvOS SDK inherits iOS frameworks, the Facebook SDK for tvOS inherits from the Facebook SDK for iOS,” Facebook says.

“You can also access the social graph in the same way as our SDK for iOS, see Using the Graph API, iOS. To do this you need an access token with the right permissions from the person using your app.”

You can find the development guide here. The actual SDK can be downloaded here.
