The Facebook Android app has been updated with new features concerning photo viewing, sharing abilities and voice messaging.
Faster photos are now available on the app. Simply when opening the app on an Android device, the photos will appear more quickly.
The sharing functionality of the app has been improved. Users of the app have the ability to share their friends’ stories to different Timelines, groups, and pages. Android users were previously only able to share friends’ stories on to their own Timeline.
Also, Facebook for Android now has voice messaging which can be accessed within the app. Users of the Facebook Messenger app just a couple of weeks ago were given the ability to send voice messages. This was then applied to iOS and Android devices. Similarly, the social platform made VoIP calling available to users in the U.S. on iOS devices.
The update of speed for Android came after a similar update of the iOS version of Facebook. Both apps had received complaints from users about the speed of it, meaning that Facebook chose to rebuild the apps from scratch with that issue in mind.
