Facebook has released a new update for its Android app loaded with new features including faster viewing of photos, voice messaging, and improvised sharing of friends’ stories to Timelines, pages and groups.
The updated version is faster, however, it could vary depending on your device and the Android version you are running. Many users have been complaining that the app is slow and laggy. Well, you should blame your device for that, and it’s time you upgrade your device.
The new version has an expanded Share button. That is, you can not only share stories on your Timeline, but also share it on your friends’ Timelines, including Pages you have “liked,” and Groups you can participate in.
With the voice messaging feature, Android users can now communicate with friends by sending voice messages from the main app. This feature was first introduced in the standalone Messenger application a few days back.
Here’s the full changelog of the Facebook for Android updated version 2.1:
- Open and view photos faster.
- Share your friends’ stories to timelines, pages and groups.
- Send voice messages when you have more to say.
Android users can download the latest updated version of the app directly from the Google Play Store. The version number “Varies with device” according to the page, but most of you will see it as 2.1.
