I will discuss the recent observations of correlation of the Extra-Galactic Gamma-ray Background with catalogues of galaxies as tracers of the Large Scale Structures of the Universe. These observations offer a new way to investigate the diffuse extra-galactic gamma-rays providing access to the redshift distribution of this emission. Furthermore, this allows to derive new stringent constraints on the presence of a possible dark matter annihilation signal.
