fbandroidFollowing the new Graph Search and a very feature filled update for Facebook for iOS , all android users now get a new update for the Facebook app. This update focuses on the following key areas:

  • Open and view photos faster.
  • Share your friends’ stories to timelines, pages and groups.
  • Send voice messages when you have more to say

Facebook claims that its made some major improvements so that images now load faster. However in day to day usage we did not quite find noticeable improvements.

This update also addresses sharing of posts. Earlier one could only share posts on their timeline, but with the recent update one can select whom he or she wants to share the post with.

However the most exciting part of the update was the newly added voice messages feature. Voice messages can be sent to friends and the limit of which currently is 1 minute. Thus we can see Facebook is determined to make the experience on the mobile platforms better and reports suggest its made a policy of rolling out updates every eight weeks. Let us see how they catch up in the upcoming months to various messaging platforms ruling the market.
