Facebook for Android Refits as Mark Zuckerburg moves to Android !!!
Android users have been waiting for this for a long time. Facebook for Android get a major overhaul which includes new features like Friend Requests, Video Playback, and Event Notifications.
Here are all the upgrades which are included on the Facebook App for Android:
- The ability to post a status update or search for friends with just one click
- A new photo reel that enables easy viewing of photos and videos from friends in your News Feed
- A draggable Notifications drawer where you can easily see if a friend posted a note on your wall, commented or liked a post or tagged you in a photo
- Video playback from the app. Similar to the Facebook for iPhone application, we are using the H.264 baseline profile for encoding videos
- Support for Events. You can now review your upcoming events, read your event details, and even RSVP – all from the application
- Respond to friend requests without leaving the application
Few weeks before Mark Zuckerburg dissesd iPhone and mentioned in his Facebook status that he will be moving on to Android. This could have probably been a suitable time to release this update.
If you have Facebook app for Android on your device, you will be prompted to update to the newer version. If you are already using the updated Facebook App for Android, do let us know how is it working for you ?
